Fair Housing

PUBLIC NOTICE FOR STEUBEN COUNTY RESIDENTS

Housing Discrimination is Against the Law

Housing discrimination is illegal.  Federal Fair Housing Law and New York State laws prohibit discrimination in the sale, rental, financing and brokerage of housing based on race, color, religion, sex, national origin, disability, age, marital status, familial status, sexual orientation, or military status.

Steuben County supports fair housing throughout the County and assists persons with fair housing problems.  Several organizations can provide you with assistance if you are involved in a housing dispute or believe you are a victim of discrimination in the sale, rental or financing of housing.
