The Civil Rights Division (Division) of the Department of Justice, created by the enactment of the Civil Rights Act of 1957, works to uphold the civil and constitutional rights of all Americans, particularly some of the most vulnerable members of our society. The Division is primarily responsible for enforcing federal statutes and executive orders that prohibit, among other things, unlawful discrimination in education, employment, housing, police service, public accommodations and facilities, voting, and federally funded and conducted programs. The Division also has jurisdiction to enforce constitutional prohibitions on certain conduct by law enforcement agencies and public residential institutions, such as health care and correctional facilities.
The Housing and Civil Enforcement Section (HCE or Section) works to protect some of the most fundamental rights of individuals, including the right to access housing free from discrimination, the right to access credit on an equal basis, the right to patronize places of business that provide public accommodations and the right to practice one's faith free from discrimination. HCE handles the Department's fair lending enforcement responsibilities under the Fair Housing Act (FHA), the Equal Credit Opportunity Act (ECOA) and the Servicemembers Civil Relief Act (SCRA). The Section also enforces the other provisions of the FHA and the SCRA, as well as the land use provisions of the Religious Land Use and Institutionalized Persons Act and Title II of the 1964 Civil Rights.
