Chatham County's Commitment to Fair Housing


Chatham County is committed to furthering fair housing efforts by promoting fair and equal housing opportunities for its residents. The County encourages potential homeowners and renters to be aware of their rights under the National Fair Housing Law. Under Title VIII of the Civil Rights Act of 1968, as amended, in most instances, it is against the law to discriminate against a person in the buying, renting or financing of houses or apartments because of race, color, religion, sex, national origin, family status or handicap. This law entitles any person who feels he or she has been discriminated against to file a complaint.

Interested persons can call or email Stephanie Watkins-Cruz at 919-545-8398 or email her at, or call the North Carolina Human Relation Commission directly at 1-919-807-4420.
