United States V. Housing Authority Of The City Of Eastman (S.D. Ga.)


Appendix F NOTICE TO POTENTIAL VICTIMS OF HOUSING DISCRIMINATION BECAUSE OF RACE OR COLOR AT EASTMAN HOUSING AUTHORITY PROPERTIES

On October 18, 2010, the United States District Court for the Southern District of Georgia entered a Consent Decree resolving a housing discrimination lawsuit brought by the United States against the Housing Authority of the City of Eastman, Georgia (EHA). The lawsuit alleged that the EHA engaged in a pattern or practice of housing discrimination based on race or color at EHA rental properties, in violation of the federal Fair Housing Act.

Under the Consent Decree, a Settlement Fund has been established to compensate persons whose rights may have been violated. You may qualify to recover from this Settlement Fund, or for other relief if you, >because of your race or color, were denied a rental or were delayed in receiving a rental at an EHA property, were denied a rental unit at a particular EHA property, or were subjected to different terms, conditions, or privileges of the rental of a dwelling.

If you believe you have been discriminated against because of race or color in connection with the Eastman Housing Authority, please contact the United States Department of Justice at: 1-800-896-7743, mailbox 004.
