About Fair Housing Month: Each April the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) marks the passage of the 1968 Fair Housing Act, which became law shortly after the assassination of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. It prohibits housing discrimination based on race, color, national origin, religion, sex, disability and family status.
