Fair Housing


You have a right to live where you want to live.  The Fair Housing Amendments Act specifically prohibits discrimination in any area of housing because of race, color, national origin, religion, sex, handicap/disability or familial status.


Muskingum County contracts with the Ohio Regional Development Corporation in Coshocton, Ohio to run its Fair Housing Program.
