Berkeley City Council has enacted Ordinance No. 7568.
This prohibits landlords from discriminating based on source of income. If approached by a Section 8 tenant please be aware that saying "no" could be considered housing discrimination. Please contact an attorney before rejecting a tenant application due to their source of income or being a Section 8 tenant.
