I have been discriminated against in my search for housing. What can I do?

The City of Flagstaff is committed to fair housing. The Federal Fair Housing Act and the State of Arizona prohibit housing discrimination based on race, color, religion, sex, disability, national origin, and familial status. For legal assistance, the City of Flagstaff Housing Authority refers households to the non-profit DNA Legal Services and to the Southwest Fair Housing Council.
