Fair Housing

Economic Action Maryland’s Fair Housing program works to root out discrimination in housing and ensure everyone has the right to free and fair housing.

To do this, we educate individuals and organizations about housing rights; take fair housing complaints and work to resolve them; advocate on behalf of individuals and communities facing current and historic discrimination; educate housing providers about their fair housing responsibilities, and conduct fair housing testing and investigations to identify and document discrimination taking place in Maryland.
