Fair Housing

Fair Housing Law

The City of Anaheim is committed to furthering fair housing efforts by promoting fair and equal housing opportunities for its residents. It has continued to enforce the Fair Housing Law, Title VIII of the Civil Rights Act of 1968 and the California Fair Employment and Housing Act (FEHA), by continuing to address discrimination in our community and to support programs that will educate the public about the right to equal housing opportunities.

It is the city's policy to provide services without regard to race, color, ancestry, religion, national origin, age, gender, marital status, familial status, source of income, sexual orientation, or disability. This commitment extends to all grant-funded housing programs provided by the city.

 Under direction of the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD), the City of Anaheim has a responsibility to affirmatively further fair housing within the city limits. The promotion and exercise of fair housing requires freedom from the impediments of discriminatory rental, sales, lending and insurance practices, exclusionary zoning and land use practices, and other forms of barriers to housing choice. These barriers to fair housing have been identified in the most recent Orange County Regional Analysis of Impediments to Fair Housing Choice (2010–2015).

Facilitating Freedom

To facilitate freedom from identified impediments and to eliminate those barriers, the city will strive to:
  • Develop and manage housing choices which are safe, affordable, sustainable, and accessible
  • Improve access to services for persons with Limited English Proficiency
  • Promote fair housing rights and fair housing choice
  • Remedy discrimination in housing through education, training, and outreach
To further reflect its commitment to fair housing, the city has engaged the services of the Fair Housing Council of Orange County to provide education, training, and legal services:
