Housing Discrimination Complaint

Complaints about housing discrimination should be directed to the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD).  HUD has a form entitled “Housing Discrimination Complaint Form,” which is available for download and can be submitted online.  A victim may also file a complaint by writing a letter, or calling their nearest HUD office within one year of an alleged violation of the Fair Housing Act.   

The complaint must include:

  • Name and address of the person filing the complaint
  • The name and address of the respondent
  • The address or other identification to the housing involved
  • A short description to the alleged violation
  • The date(s) to the alleged violation

HUD also provides a toll-free TTY phone for the hearing impaired: 1-800-927-9275.
