Public Service Announcement:
Fair Housing, It’s the Law
To promote fair housing practices, the City of Palmview encourages potential homeowners and renters to be aware of their rights under the National Fair Housing Law.
Title VIII of the Civil Rights Act of 1968, as amended, prohibits discrimination against any person on the basis of race, color, religion, sex, handicap, familial status or national origin in the sale or rental of units in the housing market.
For more information on fair housing or to report possible fair housing discrimination, call the US Department of Housing and Urban Development’s toll-free hotline at 1-800-669-9777.
