The Department of Housing and Urban Development awarded $962,160 in funding to 19 HUD Fair Housing Assistance Program (FHAP) agencies nationwide to support activities related to COVID-19. The awards are part of $1.5 million in Partnership and Special Enforcement Effort funds being provided to FHAP agencies through the Coronavirus Aid, Relief and Economic Security Act of 2020 (CARES Act).

Similarly, Special Enforcement Effort funds enhance the fair housing enforcement activities of FHAP agencies.
