child, a parent-child relationship with a minor, or you are pregnant), lawful source of income or rental
subsidy used for rental payments.
The New Jersey Division on Civil Rights is the State agency that is authorized to enforce the Law
Against Discrimination. Under the Division’s Multiple Dwelling Reporting Rules, N.J.A.C. 13:10-1.1

information on this form. The information is used to prevent and eliminate discrimination in housing.
