Fair Housing

Everyone has the right to be treated fairly in housing. If you believe you have been denied your housing rights, you may have experienced unlawful discrimination. Housing discrimination occurs when sellers, landlords, mortgage lenders, insurers and others make illegal housing and lending decisions based on an individual’s protected class status, which includes race, color, national origin, religion, sex, disability, and familial status (families or legal guardians living with children under the age of 18; pregnant women; people securing custody of children under 18).

If you believe you have been a victim of unlawful discrimination in housing, please contact the Sioux Falls Human Relations/Fair Housing Office by phone (605-367-8745); by email (humanrelations@siouxfalls.org); or by stopping at the Human Relations/Fair Housing Office (1st Floor City Hall, 224 W. 9th Street, Sioux Falls, SD).
