The City of Atchison is a proud supporter of the Kansas Fair Housing Act, which requires equal opportunity for families or individuals to reside in, to buy, or to rent housing of their choice, in the neighborhood of their choice, and for which they financially qualify. Every individual within the state has the right to fair housing without regard to race, color, religion, national origin, ancestry, sex, disability, or familial status.
