Fair Housing Cases & Decisions

The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) is charged with primary responsibility for enforcing the Fair Housing Act (FHA). The Division of Human and Civil Rights is substantially equivalent to HUD in investigating charges of housing discrimination in Delaware. The U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ) also pursues fair housing claims under certain circumstances, such as when there is an alleged pattern or practice of discrimination. Read fair housing administrative decisions and more from both agencies below.
