Texas Workforce Commission Civil Rights Division (TWCCRD)

Instructions: The Texas Workforce Commission Civil Rights Division processes many housing discrimination complaints for individuals who have been discriminated against while trying to buy, finance or rent a home or apartment in Texas.  If you believe you have been discriminated against based on your race, color, national origin, disability, familial status, religion, or sex, and the property involved is NOT located within the cities of Austin, Fort Worth, Corpus Christi, Dallas or Garland, you may complete and submit the Housing Discrimination Complaint Form below. These municipalities have jurisdiction for housing complaints, so please contact the city directly for complaints related to properties in these areas. If you have already filed this same complaint with the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development, also known as HUD, please do NOT use this form, because we will NOT be able to take this complaint.

An Intake Investigator will review your online form and contact you within three (3) business days by telephone or e-mail to discuss your inquiry further.  The Intake Investigator may also request additional information necessary to process your inquiry.  Once your inquiry is complete, the Intake Investigator will draft the Housing Complaint, and send it to you by email for your signature.  You have 10 business days from the date you speak to the Intake Investigator to provide the necessary information or to return the signed Housing Complaint.

If you have any questions about completing this online form, please contact our Intake Section at 512-463-4819 or send an email to housingcomplaint@twc.state.tx.us.

Thank you for contacting the Texas Workforce Commission Civil Rights Division.
