If you live in subsidized housing, you may file a complaint with the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD). You should file a complaint as soon as possible after the denial, but the complaint must be filed within one year of the incident. HUD will investigate the complaint at no cost to you. You may file a complaint online if you have access to a computer, or you may call or write the regional office.
If you decide to write, you should include the following information:
- Your name and address;
- The name and address of the person your complaint is against;
- The address or other identification of the housing involved;
- A short description of the alleged violation; and
- The date of the alleged violation.
