Fair Housing laws promote equal access to homeownership and rental housing opportunities

Fair Housing laws are fundamental to the values of our community. By protecting against housing discrimination, fair housing makes Longmont a stronger community and a better place to live, work, and play.

Under federal law, it is illegal to discriminate against any person under the protected classes: race, color, national origin, religion, sex, familial status, and disability.  Colorado State law adds the categories of marital status, creed, and ancestry.

Housing discrimination is illegal. Both state and federal laws prohibit discrimination in housing based on protected classes. Also, it is illegal for anyone to threaten, coerce, intimidate, or interfere with anyone exercising a fair housing right or assisting others who exercise that right.
