Fair Housing

The intent of Fair Housing laws and regulations is to work toward fairness and equal access in the housing market. Communities that thrive are those that are diverse in many ways, and complying with these laws ensures that your community can provide opportunity to people of all abilities, incomes, races, and life stages. 
This guide provides a brief overview of current laws and regulations relevant to the activities of most municipalities in the state and links to better understand regulations and to guide you in implementing and complying with fair housing regulations in your community. When it comes to complying with Fair Housing laws, we also strongly recommend that you check with local town counsel on any housing activities as well.
