Fair housing is your right. There are Federal, State and local laws that protect renters and homeowners against housing discrimination. The housing officials from many of the Baltimore region’s local jurisdictions have published new educational booklets outlining fair housing rights and responsibilities for rented and owner-occupied homes. The booklets, made possible by a fair housing grant to the Baltimore Metropolitan Council (BMC) from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD), were prepared by the Baltimore Regional Fair Housing Group, Baltimore Neighborhoods, Inc., the Maryland Commission on Civil Rights, and, for the rental booklet, the Maryland Multi-Housing Association.
