Fair Housing

Shawnee is strongly committed to affirmatively furthering fair housing. Housing discrimination is illegal. Federal Fair Housing Law protects people from discrimination based on:

  •  Race
  •  Color
  • National origin
  • Religion
  • Sex (including gender identity and sexual orientation)
  • Familial Status
  • Disability

The Fair Housing Act protects these groups when buying a home, getting a mortgage, obtaining housing insurance, seeking housing assistance, and exploring other housing-related activities.
