Fairness in housing and public places
 
Equal access in public accommodations and housing is a right, not a privilege. The CRC works tirelessy to prevent and ameliorate the affects of discrimination in our community. We accept formal complaints from citizens who feel they have been discriminated against in a public place or in housing because of their race, color, religion, national origin, gender, family status or disability.

Our staff members document and investigate citizens' complaints and conduct standardized testing of alleged violators' facilities. We also provide referrals to the Advocacy Council for People with Disabilities, which advises local government officials about accommodations in programs, services and facilities.
These intake, investigation, enforcement, education and outreach services are provided in conjunction with the Federal Fair Housing Assistance Program and the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD).

For more information about fairness in housing and public places or to file a complaint, please call 704-336-5160.
