What does the Colorado Housing Discrimination Poster cover?

The Colorado Anti-Discrimination Act (CADA) prohibits discrimination by persons who show, sell, transfer, rent,  lease, advertise, or finance real estate based on any protected class pertaining to housing. (C.R.S. § 43-34-501 et seq.) “Housing” means any building, structure, vacant land, or part thereof offered for sale, lease, rent, or transfer of ownership. It does not include rooms offered for rent in a single-family dwelling by the homeowner.

The following topics are covered on the Colorado Housing Discrimination Poster:

  • Discriminatory or unfair housing practices: to refuse to show, sell, transfer, rent, or lease, or refuse to receive and transmit any bona fide offer to buy, sell, rent, or lease, or otherwise make unavailable or deny or withhold from any person housing; or to discriminate in the terms, conditions, or privileges pertaining to any housing.
  • Protected classes in housing: disability, race, creed, color, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity, gender expression, religion, marital status, familial status, national origin or ancestry, source of income, or veteran or military status.
  • Reasonable accommodations must be provided to a person with a disability, unless its provision would cause undue hardship.
  • Use of assistance animals, including service and emotional support animals, as a reasonable accommodation.
  • Retaliation for engaging in a protected activity prohibited.
  • CROWN Act of 2020 prohibits discrimination based on hair texture, hair type or protective hairstyles.
  • Equal Housing Opportunity: Notice that the Colorado Civil Rights Division (CCRD) is a Fair Housing Assistance Program that partners with HUD in the enforcement of Fair Housing Laws.
  • Contact information for the CCRD and complaint filing deadline.
