The Fair Housing Initiatives Program (FHIP) provides funding to fair housing organizations and other non-profits that assist individuals who believe that they have been victims of housing discrimination. Currently FHIP provides funds to eligible organizations through competitive grants under three initiatives to carry out enforcement activities to prevent or eliminate discriminatory housing practices and inform individuals of their rights and responsibilities under the Fair Housing Act. The Initiatives are: the Fair Housing Organization Initiative (FHOI), Private Enforcement Initiative (PEI) and the Education and Outreach Initiative (EOI).
HUD is making available through this NOFA $39,200,000 for Fair Housing Initiative Programs.
