Franklin County fully endorses state and federal laws regarding housing discrimination and actively promotes full access to housing opportunity, both rental and ownership, regardless of race, creed, color, religion, sex, national origin, disability and/or familial status. In order to affirmatively further fair housing, Franklin County has established a Fair Housing Program and has appointed a Fair Housing Officer. Any person desiring information concerning fair housing, or persons whom believe they have been discriminating against in any housing related matter may contact the Franklin County Fair Housing Officer, Donna Kissane, County Manager who can be reached at 518-481-1693 or dkissane@franklincony.org or Franklin County Courthouse 355 West Main St. Suite 456 Malone, NY 12953. Alternatively, anyone who feels he or she has been discriminated against may also file a complaint of housing discrimination directly with the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) by calling 1-800-669-9777 (toll free) or 1-800-927-9275 (TTY).
