About your right to Fair Housing Choice
The Town of Tonawanda strives to advocate for fair housing choice for all people looking to reside within the Town. Your right to choose a home or apartment wherever you want is protected under federal and state laws. It is illegal for a landlord to discriminate on the basis of race, color, religion, sex, national origin, family status, age, military status, sexual orientation, or disability. For complete information on all of your housing rights you may visit the U.S. HUD and the NYS Division of Human Rights websites.

How to file a discrimination case
If you feel that you may have been discriminated against in your search for a housing unit, then you may file a discrimination case with the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development and the New York State Division of Human Rights. Information on how to file a case can be found here:  File a Case
