Title VIII of the Civil Rights Act of 1968, known as the Federal Fair Housing Law, guarantees
the right of all Americans to dwell in the neighborhood of their choice. It is one of the most important
components of our national civil rights policy. Discrimination in the sale, rental, leasing, or financing of housing or land to be used for construction of housing, or in the provision of brokerage services because of race, color, religion, ancestry, age, sex, national origin, handicap, or disability is prohibited by Title VIII of the Civil Rights Act of 1968 (Federal Fair Housing Law). The Pennsylvania Human Relations Act adds the additional protected classes for age, ancestry and the use of guide or support animals.
