HUD's 2010 Fair Housing Report included these highlights:
- More than 10,000 fair housing discrimination complaints were filed during FFY 2010.
- Discrimination based on disability continued to be the largest single category of complaints. Next in line were race and family status.
- HUD and its fair housing partners resolved discrimination complaints faster than ever before, processing 4,494 new complaints within 100 days - 328 more than in 2009 and 583 more than in 2008.
