Fair Housing

The City of Ontario is committed to furthering and improving fair housing opportunities so that people in all walks of life have the opportunity to find suitable housing in the community. To that end, the City contracts with a fair housing service provider to provide landlord/tenant education, conduct testing of the rental and ownership market, and investigate and mediate housing complaints where needed. The City periodically prepares the required federal planning reports, including the Analysis of Impediments to Fair Housing Choice, to document the City’s progress in improving and maintaining fair housing opportunities. Recommendations from that effort are contained within the Housing Element. The City also prepares, as required by federal law, housing planning documents and progress toward fair housing goals set forth in the Consolidated Plan.
