Fair Housing

Fair Housing

 

Fair housing activities are under the direction of the Steubenville Fair Housing Practices Commission. The Fair Housing Commission assists those who have been victimized by housing discrimination with the filing of complaints with the U. S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) and the Ohio Civil Rights Commission (OCRC). The Fair Housing Commission also provides educational seminars and workshops for the public concerning equal housing opportunity and housing discrimination; and encourages area banks to invest in low income and predominantly minority neighborhoods. The Fair Housing Commission consists of five (5) members who serve without compensation. The fair housing program is administered by the Planning and Community Development Office. Fair Housing Commission meetings are held on the third Monday of each month at 6:30 p.m. in Steubenville City Council Chambers.

A fair housing complaint can be filed in person with the City’s Fair Housing Practices Commission or may be filed on-line by visiting HUD’s website, www.hud.gov, and by visiting the OCRC’s website, www.crc.ohio.gov.
