The Fair Housing Act of 1968, which was officially signed into law by President Lyndon B. Johnson, extended the basic discrimination protections within the 1964 Civil Rights Act into the housing market. It explicitly prohibits discrimination in the purchase, sale, rental, or financing of housing — private or public — based on race, color, national origin, religion, or sex. The act was amended in 1988 to also include familial status and disability.
