[ARCHIVED] Fair Housing Month: Opportunity in Every Community

April is Fair Housing Month — a time when communities, advocates, organizations and public agencies celebrate the importance of every person in America having access to the same housing choices and economic possibilities.

Housing is more than just a physical structure.

Where a family lives and the quality of that housing has a huge impact on how they live and grow, which schools their children will attend, what amenities are accessible and the job opportunities that will be available to them.

The Fair Housing Act protects the right of every person in America to live where they choose. To learn more about your rights and your responsibilities, visit hud.gov/fairhousing.

As we celebrate Fair Housing Month, we ask you to join us in a commitment to working together to create communities of opportunity where everyone has an equal chance to succeed in life.
