Fair Housing

At Minnesota Housing, fair housing means every Minnesotan has a safe, suitable and accessible place to call home regardless of their race, color, creed, religion, national origin, sex, marital status, status with regard to public assistance, disability, familial status, gender identity or sexual orientation.

Our fair housing policy incorporates requirements of civil rights laws, including the federal Fair Housing Act, Minnesota Human Rights Act and Americans with Disabilities Act. However, it means more than simply following the law.

Our policy includes furthering fair housing by helping ensure families have a choice of where to live, shrinking disparities in homeownership and more. We use the Analysis of Impediments to Fair Housing report to assess barriers to housing choice. 

We know housing is the foundation for success, and housing in vibrant and diverse communities will truly allow all Minnesotans to thrive.
