Fair Housing Act
Title VIII of the Civil Rights Act of 1968 (Fair Housing Act), as amended, prohibits discrimination in the sale, rental, and financing of dwellings, and in other housing-related transactions, based on race, color, national origin, religion, sex, familial status (including children under the age of 18 living with parents or legal custodians, pregnant women, and people securing custody of children under the age of 18), and handicap (disability).
The Fair Housing Act mandate is carried out by the Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) entitlement jurisdictions. The City of Prescott became an entitlement jurisdiction in 2005. City residents who believe they have been discriminated against in attempting to achieve housing should contact Darla Eastman, CDBG Grant Administrator, 201 S Cortez St, Prescott, AZ 86303 / (928) 777-1205.
