Housing Rights for People with Disabilities

People with disabilities who want to buy or rent a home are protected against discrimination by the federal Fair Housing Act. - People with disabilities receiving assistance through government-operated housing programs are also protected under the Americans with Disabilities Act​ 

​Maryland also prohibits discrimination against people with disabilities in housing. See State Government Article 20-701- 20-710 and COMAR 14.03.04.01-16 Some local governments have also passed anti-discrimination laws; check with your local government.
