Fair Housing Law Project

Federal and state laws prohibit housing discrimination on the basis of race or color, national origin, religion, sex, disability, family status, marital status, gender identity and expression, sexual orientation, source of income, and others.

The GBLA Fair Housing Law Project provides fair housing education, investigation, and enforcement services for Kern County residents, regardless of income, who believe they have been victims of illegal housing discrimination. When fair housing investigations yield evidence of illegal discrimination, the Project can assist and represent victims in administrative agency complaints or lawsuits.
