Fair Housing Act Analysis

Here's what you need to know about the federal Fair Housing Act, at a glance:

The federal Fair Housing Act (FHA) prohibits housing discrimination based on race, color, religion, sex, family status, national origin, or disability.
The FHA prohibits discrimination against people with disabilities, including those with severe breathing problems.
The FHA is important because it allows people with breathing disabilities to seek reasonable accommodations from owners and operators of most housing in the United States in order to address the serious health hazards posed by secondhand smoke, which infiltrates their housing.
