The Board of Supervisors has made affordable housing a priority in the future development of Fairfax County, to ensure that the broadest range of residents have an opportunity to succeed.

The Office of Human Rights and Equity Programs also offers intake screening for complaints covered by law, and if appropriate, can assist in formulating a complaint to sign. The time it takes to investigate a complaint can vary greatly, depending on the facts of the case.
