Equal Housing Opportunity

It is the policy of Hood River County to provide, within constitutional limitations, for fair housing throughout the County for all residents.  The federal Fair Housing Act protects your right to rent an apartment, buy a home, obtain a mortgage, or purchase homeowners' insurance free from discrimination based on:


  • Race
  • Color
  • Religion
  • Gender
  • National Origin
  • Disability (mental and physical)
  • Familial Status (presence of children under 18 in the home)
