The Fair Housing Act of 1968 protects people from discrimination when they are renting or buying a home, getting a mortgage, seeking housing assistance, or engaged in other housing-related activities. The Act prohibits discrimination in housing based on race, color, national origin, religion, sex (including gender identity and sexual orientation), familial status, or disability. Visit the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development's Office of Fair Housing and Equal Opportunity for more information.

Virginia’s Fair Housing Law makes it illegal to discriminate in residential housing on the basis of race, color, religion, national origin, sex, elderliness, familial status, disability, source or funds, sexual orientation, gender identity, or military status.
