  • Family status (families with children under 18)
  • Genetic information
  • Marital status
  • National origin
  • Race
  • Gender Identity
  • Sexual orientation
  • Public assistance Recipient (e.g., Section 8 voucher holder or MRVP voucher holder)
  • Children relating to a home with Lead Paint

If you believe you have been a victim of housing discrimination, you may contact the Massachusetts Office of the Attorney General's Civil Rights Division at (617) 727-2200 to file a civil rights complaint.
