Discrimination in the sale, rental, leasing, financing of housing or land to be used for construction of housing or in the provision of brokerage services because of race, color, religion, ancestry, sex, national origin, handicap or disability is prohibited by Title VIII of the Civil Rights Act of 1968 (Federal Fair Housing Law) and the Pennsylvania Human Rights Act. It is the policy of the Borough of Tyrone to implement programs to ensure equal opportunity in housing for all persons regardless of race, color, religion, ancestry, sex, national origin, handicap or disability or familial status (families with children). Therefore, the Borough of Tyrone does hereby pass this chapter.
Within available resources, the Borough of Tyrone will assist all persons who feel they have been discriminated against because of race, color, religion, ancestry, sex, national origin, handicap or disability of familial status (families with children) to seek equity under federal and state laws by filing a complaint with the Pennsylvania Human Relations Commission and the United States Department of Housing and Urban Development.
The Borough of Tyrone shall publicize this chapter and, through this publicity, shall cause owners of real estate, developers and builders to become aware of their respective responsibilities and rights under the Federal Fair Housing Law, the Pennsylvania Human Relations Act and any local laws or ordinances.

Further publicity will, at a minimum, include but not be limited to the printing and publicizing of this chapter and other applicable fair housing information through local media and community contacts, distribution of posters and flyers and any other means which will bring to the attention of those affected the knowledge of their respective responsibilities and rights concerning equal opportunity in housing.
