The Boston Fair Housing Commission (BFHC) promotes equal opportunity in housing through its programs. The BFHC offers a range of activities and training to educate the public about fair housing law, including training programs, publication of fair housing materials, and co-ordination of fair housing workshops, fairs, and community events.

Lead Paint

It is illegal for housing providers to discriminate against families with children under six even if the unit is known to have lead paint. The Massachusetts lead law requires that any place built prior to 1978 where a child under six years old lives must be made lead safe.
