Fair Housing

The Town of Westerly, as a partner of the State and Federal governments, is committed to creating equal housing opportunities for all persons living in the community by prohibiting discrimination in housing on the basis of race, color, national origin, religion, family status (having children under the age of 18), mental or physical disability, marital status, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity or expression, age, and/or status as a victim of domestic violence.

If you or someone you know believes they have been a victim of discrimination in housing which has now, or formerly, received federal funding through the US Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD), please contact (800) 669-9777 or (800) 877-8339 TTY.
