Opportunities for Public Input on Fair Housing Issues
The North Carolina Department of Commerce is conducting a survey and a series of public meetings to learn more about how North Carolina residents are discriminated against when searching for housing. It is against the law for anyone to be denied housing based on their race, the color of their skin, their religion, their sex, their national origin, a disability, or familial status (having children or being pregnant).
We need your voice! The Department is committed to learning how discrimination is occurring across the state and what it can do to stop it. You can help by telling us your about your experience.
Please share your opinion about fair housing issues by:
