The Policy & Race Research Action Council updates annually its compilation of state and local laws prohibiting discrimination in the housing market based on source of income. These laws protect households who rely on such sources of income as Housing Choice Vouchers and Supplemental Security Income to pay their rent—preventing landlords from denying, evicting, or treating them unfairly on that basis. The document also explains that authorizing statutes for the Low Income Housing Tax Credit and HOME programs provide source-of-income protections. The interim regulations for the national Housing Trust Fund also provide this protection.
