The U.S. Department of Housing & Urban Development (HUD) has allocated $38 million under its Fair Housing Initiatives Program (FHIP) to support 155 national and local fair housing organizations working to identify violations of the Fair Housing Act.

The FHIP grants will be divided between $30.3 million for Private Enforcement Initiative grants to probe prevent or eliminate discriminatory housing practices, $7.4 million for Education and Outreach Initiative grants to communicate with housing providers and the general public regarding fair housing laws at the national and local levels, and $500,000 for Fair Housing Organizations Initiative grants to assist the work of nonprofit fair housing.

“Every person should have a fair chance to live in a community of opportunity, free from discrimination,” said HUD Secretary Julián Castro. “HUD remains deeply committed to fighting housing discrimination so folks have an equal shot at achieving the American Dream. Working closely with our fair housing partners on the ground, the investments we make today are a strong step forward to put an end to housing discrimination.”
