Discrimination in Housing

The City of Springfield has a commitment to promote equal housing access without discrimination based on race, creed, color, sex, religion, handicap, familial status, natural origin, or ancestry. The City Springfield has a fair housing ordinance that matches the requirements of state and federal law. The Fair Housing Act of 1968 required that all programs of the Department of Housing and Urban Development be administered in a manner to “affirmatively further fair housing”.
