Westmoreland County Fair Housing Guide
the Federal Fair Housing Act (FHA), all residents of Westmoreland County are
guaranteed the right to live in any dwelling that is affordable to them. If
you have been discouraged from applying for housing because of your race,
sex, religion, national origin, color, if you have children under the age of
18, or are disabled, you are the victim of a crime. It is against the law to
deny you housing for any of these reasons.
The purpose of this Fair Housing Guide is to educate Westmoreland County
residents about their rights and responsibilities under the Fair Housing Act
(FHA) and to provide guidance on how to recognize housing discrimination and
how to file a fair housing complaint.
