Fair Housing Act Cases Filed by Year and State

Metadata Updated: February 22, 2019

The 'Fair Housing Act Cases Filed by Year and State with the Bases and Outcomes - 2000-2013' dataset summarizes the cases filed as a result of complaints made regarding violations of the Fair Housing Act. The Fair Housing Act prohibits most discrimination in housing transactions based on federally recognized bases (race, religion, familial status, etc.) Cases are investigated by the Office of Fair Housing and Equal Opportunity (FHEO) within the Department of Housing and Urban Development or by state or local government agencies (FHAP agencies) who partner with FHEO to investigate these complaints. Cases may be conciliated or settled during the investigation process, or there may be reasons why a case needs to be administratively closed, or else the investigation will determine whether there was cause to believe discrimination occurred. If there is cause to believe discrimination occurred, the case will go through a legal adjudication process to be resolved.
