Boston Fair Housing Commission

The Boston Fair Housing Commission was established in 1982 to eliminate discrimination and increase access to housing in Boston through investigation and enforcement, affirmative fair marketing, operating a metropolitan housing listing service, and providing fair housing trainings throughout the City of Boston.

Analysis of Impediments

An Analysis of Impediments is required to certify that programs that receive federal funding through the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) are affirmatively furthering fair housing choice. It proves that municipalities are taking action to eliminate identified impediments and maintain fair housing records.

The City’s commitment to fair housing and civil rights extends far beyond these program requirements. Boston is committed to ensuring that all city residents—and those who aspire to live here—have full, fair and equal access to housing, public services, and participation in civic life.
