of Greater San Antonio

The Fair Housing Council of Greater San Antonio is a private, non-profit 501(c)(3) corporation dedicated to promoting fair housing and eliminating discriminatory housing practices in the areas of rental housing, real estate sales, mortgage lending, and homeowners’ insurance.

The Fair Housing Council was founded in September 1996 by a group of concerned citizens with the assistance of the National Fair Housing Alliance (NFHA) and funding from the United States Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD). This group established the Fair Housing Council because research made clear that equal access to housing was far from a reality in many parts of the country, including San Antonio, Texas.

With funding under HUD’s Fair Housing Initiatives Program, the Council has maintained its Main Office in San Antonio, Texas (in Bexar County), opened a Field Office in McAllen, Texas (in Hidalgo County), and expanded its service area to include the following South Texas counties:
