Housing and Community Development Act

Title I, also known as the Housing and Community Development Act, became law in 1972. This edict makes it illegal to discriminate based upon race, national origin, sex, religion or color for a business or agency that receives Housing and Urban Development funding or services. Proprietors who offer HUD-approved rentals must adhere strictly to this law, or risk a fine and removal from the rent referral program.
