The City of Chattanooga's Fair Housing Program endeavors to assure decent and suitable living conditions for every citizen. The fair housing law prohibits discrimination in the sale or rental of housing based on seven protected classes:
• Race
• Color
• Religion
• National Origin
• Sex
• Disability
• Familial Status

Discrimination is defined as unfair treatment towards a person or a family that falls within the purview of any of the seven protected classes.

Rules of the law apply to an owner or any other person engaged in managing housing transactions. Implementation of the law applies to financial institutions, real estate brokers, builders, operations, developers, insurance agents, owners or managers of rental units, and individual owners who place their property on the real estate market by advertising or displaying a notice.

The City of Chattanooga's Fair Housing Opportunities Ordinance mirrors Title VIII of the Civil Rights Act of 1968 which prohibits unlawful discrimination in housing.
