Legal assistance for victims of discrimination overview

Renters or homebuyers who believe they have been victims of housing discrimination may not know where to turn and may have limited financial resources to spend on legal counsel.

The process of filing an administrative complaint or a lawsuit can be long and complicated, and a number of organizations help to ensure that individuals and families encountering discrimination get a fair hearing as they pursue a remedy. Assistance is typically provided by a non-profit organization that provides legal representation as well as advice, referrals, and other information.
