Fair Housing 

It is unlawful under federal and/or state law to discriminate in the sale, rental, or financing of housing on the basis of race, color, sex, religion, creed, national/ ethnic origin or ancestry, age, family or marital status, gender identity or expression, lawful source of income, disability, or sexual orientation. 

It is the policy of the Town of Fairfield to promote fair housing opportunities and to encourage racial and economic integration in all housing-related programs.  It is also the Town’s policy to fully comply with all federal, state, and local nondiscrimination laws and policies and with the rules and regulations governing Fair Housing and Equal Opportunity in housing and employment.

Victims of housing discrimination should take immediate action. Complainants generally have 180 days from the date of the alleged act of discrimination to file a formal complaint, which must be made under oath.  To file a complaint, you may contact the following agencies:
