Housing Discrimination Complaint Form

If you believe your fair housing rights have been violated, the Louisiana Department of Justice is ready to help you file a complaint. You have one year from the date of the alleged act of discrimination to file a complaint. We work with the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development to make sure that fair housing laws are enforced in the State of Louisiana.

Your housing discrimination complaint will be reviewed by a fair housing specialist to determine if it alleges acts that might violate the Fair Housing Act. The specialist will contact you for any additional information needed to complete this review. If your complaint involves a possible violation of the Fair Housing Act, the specialist will assist you in filing an official housing discrimination complaint.

Instructions: Please read this form carefully. An asterisk (*) indicates required information.
