The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) is awarding $24 million from its $56 million FY 2023 budget to support 57 fair housing organizations through the Fair Housing Initiatives Program (FHIP).

According to HUD, these funds are being directed to second- and third-year multi-year grantees of the Private Enforcement Initiative (PEI) to continue fair housing enforcement and educational outreach initiatives. HUD also extended financial support to the Disability Law Center under the PEI initiative and to JC Vision and Associates under the Fair Housing Organization Initiative/Continued Development Component (FHOI/CDC) program, utilizing unspent funds from the FY 2022 budget.

“Unfortunately, far too many families face bias when it comes to renting and buying homes,” said HUD Secretary Marcia Fudge. “HUD is pleased to provide our state and local partners with resources like The Fair Housing Initiatives Program that give organizations the funding they need to combat housing discrimination and help build fair and inclusive communities.” ach year, HUD makes funding available to support organizations that enforce the nation’s fair housing laws and policies, as well as educate the public, housing providers, and local governments about their rights and responsibilities under the Fair Housing Act.
