Fair Housing Services

Fair Housing is a right protected by Federal and State laws.

Each resident is entitled to housing opportunities regardless of race, color, religion, sex, national origin, disability, familial status, marital status, age, ancestry, sexual orientation, source of income, or any other arbitrary reason.

The City of Oceanside, under the direction of the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD), has a responsibility to affirmatively further fair housing within the City of Oceanside. The City of Oceanside strives to reduce housing discrimination in the housing rental, sales, lending, and insurance markets.

To do this, the City has:
  • Contracted Fair Housing Services to North County Lifeline to include discrimination complaint investigation and education and outreach to tenants, landlords, and property owners;
  • Participated and completed a Regional Analysis of Impediments to Fair Housing Choice  (19.5 MB); and
  • Developed grievance procedures for persons with disabilities under Section 504  (200 KB).
