Description of Services

The City of Buffalo’s Fair Housing Office and the Fair Housing Officer were established to assist individuals in securing the suitable housing accommodations of their choice and to eliminate impediments that lead to discrimination in housing. The Fair Housing Officer accepts referrals and walk-ins through the Division of Citizen Services. The City of Buffalo has taken direct actions to stem the practice of discrimination in housing by contracting with fellow Fair Housing agencies that assist in their efforts to serve the local community with obtaining equal housing. Those agencies are: Housing Opportunities Made Equal, Legal Aid Bureau, Neighborhood Legal Services and the Buffalo Urban League. The agencies are monitored regularly to insure that the services they provide to the citizens of Buffalo are timely and appropriate.
