Equal Opportunity Housing Act

The Equal Opportunity Housing Act was enacted in 1972 to promote equal opportunity in the provision of housing for low-income people. The Office of Fair Housing is an independent agency within the U.S Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD).

HUD Fair Housing Programs includes a wide variety of housing opportunities for people who are disadvantaged by income and/or race. FHEO manages these programs in accordance with federal law and ensures that they are administered in a timely manner, providing fair and equal treatment to all people. FHEO also enforces fair housing laws, making sure that no one is discriminated against on the basis of race, color, or national origin. FHEO’s primary function is to make sure that the Fair Housing Laws is effectively enforced throughout the country.

Many different kinds of housing opportunities are available to people who are of a lower economic status than most people. Low-income housing, including senior housing and homeless shelters, are some of the many types of housing options available to those with less than ideal credit. Other types of housing that may be eligible for financing may not be so accessible to those with lower incomes. Low-income housing includes senior housing and homeless shelters. Other housing options may be affordable to most people but may be outside of the reach of those with lower incomes.

When applying for housing, different types of resources are used to ensure that everyone is able to afford housing. One of the ways that the U.S. government helps provide housing is through the FHA. This is a program that allows people who cannot afford to purchase a home, to use their home as down payment money for an affordable home.

The Equal Opportunities Housing Act is a legal document that requires the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development to publish equal opportunity housing policies in the United States Federal Register. These policies outline the rules that HUD takes to ensure that low-income people are not discriminated against when it comes to obtaining housing.

For people who are not in the U.S. and who are looking to buy a home, the U.S. government has many programs that can help them get financing and other resources to help them find the type of housing that they want to live in. A number of agencies that offer HUD housing help include but are not limited to, Habitat for Humanity, Federal Housing Administration, National Housing Trust, and Government Housing Corporation of America.
