Discrimination in housing and housing-related transactions is prohibited under Federal and State Law. The Fair Housing Act protects people from discrimination when they are renting or buying a home, getting a mortgage, seeking housing assistance, or engaging in other housing-related activities. The Fair Housing Act prohibits housing discrimination because of: race, color, national origin, religion, sex, familial status, and disability. The Montana Human Rights Act extends protections to also prohibit housing discrimination because of: creed, marital status, and age.
