Fair Housing Resources

The Fair Housing Officer investigates initial allegations of housing discrimination, provides housing referral services and furthers affirmative marketing and outreach. Robin Florio is the Ocean County Fair Housing Officer.

Housing discrimination based on your race, color, national origin, religion, sex, family status, or disability is illegal by federal law. If you have been trying to buy or rent a home or apartment and you believe your rights have been violated, you can file a fair housing complaint. Fair housing is your right!
