Any individual or authorized representative who believes that they have been denied opportunities or treated differently due to their race, color, national origin, sex, age, disability, religion, familial status, gender identity, or other protected class as defined in the CDBG-DR FHEO Policy may file a complaint.
The CDBG-DR FCLS Division will ensure potential and actual program applicants and beneficiaries will be able to adequately submit discrimination complaints. That is, report any possible discrimination under the Fair Housing Act (including housing that is privately owned and operated) and/or any possible discrimination of civil rights violations in the CDBG-DR Program. If PRDOH receives a discrimination complaint alleging any possible discrimination under the Fair Housing Act, it will be forwarded to HUD FHEO within two (2) business days.
A Discrimination Complaint may be presented directly to PRDOH by submitting the complaint to the PRDOH CDBG-DR FCLS Division. Any discrimination complaint received by a PRDOH regional office or program area shall be forwarded to the PRDOH FCLS Division via email@example.com.
