Report on Fair Housing Trends Documents Discrimination against People with Disabilities

The National Fair Housing Alliance (NFHA) has released its annual report on fair housing trends. As noted in their press release, “In 2011, the largest share of housing discrimination cases, about 44 percent, involved discrimination against people with disabilities.” Under the federal Fair Housing Act, it is illegal to discriminate on the basis of race, color, religion, national origin, gender, disability, or familial status in rental housing, real estate sales, lending, insurance, and any financial or other services related to housing.
