Fair Housing

It is against the laws of the United States of America, the State of Florida, and Brevard County for anyone to refuse to rent, sell, or make a housing loan to you because of your race, color, religion, sex, familial status, national origin, or disability.

The City of Cocoa will continue to work closely with the Fair Housing Continuum and the Brevard County HOME Consortium to promote fair housing practices and educate community residents of their rights as it relates to fair housing.

As required by HUD, the City certifies that they must affirmatively further fair housing.This means that the City must have on file an "Analysis of Impediments to Fair Housing" (AI). The City must "take appropriate actions to overcome the effects of any impediments."Lastly, there must be records that show what actions were taken.To comply with this certification, staff partners with the Brevard County HOME Consortiumto provide fair housing education and training to citizens of Cocoa.

Contact the Housing and Neighborhood Services Division at (321) 433-8520 or the Fair Housing Continuum at (321) 757-3532 for more information.
