What Does ‘Equal Housing Lender’ Mean?

June 29, 2020 2:20 pm

Equal Housing Lender, synonymous with Equal Opportunity Lender, refers to all banks insured by the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation in the United States.

To be an Equal Housing Lender means to be committed to creating an equal housing opportunity for all borrowers. The term Equal Housing Lender was introduced in the Fair Housing Amendments Act of 1988, which amended the Fair Housing Act of 1968 and prohibits lenders from discriminating based on race, color, religion, national origin, sex, handicap or familial status. Lenders who offer home loan related services are required to show that they are an Equal Housing Lender by using the term and logo above.
