Did you know that Garland is one of only five cities in Texas that has a Fair Housing Assistance Program? A Fair Housing Assistance Program is a state or local agency that enforces a fair housing law that is substantially equivalent to the Fair Housing Act.

Garland Fair Housing Services is the enforcement mechanism that helps protect Garland residents who believe they have been victims of discrimination on the basis of race, color, national origin, religion, sex, disability or familial status in the sale, rental, or financing of housing.

Garland Fair Housing services are free and include discrimination complaint intake, complaint processing, resolution of landlord/tenant issues and education and outreach including housing related referrals. For more information, call 972-205-3300.
