Fair Housing Programs

Fair Housing Initiatives Program

HUD's Office of Fair Housing and Equal Opportunity is not alone in its fight to ensure that everyone, regardless of their race, national origin, religion, sex, familial status, or disability, has access to the housing of their choice. There are a number of public and private not-for-profit agencies dedicated to creating racially and economically integrated communities, including groups participating in HUD's Fair Housing Initiatives Program (FHIP) and HUD's Fair Housing Assistance Program (FHAP).

Fair Housing Initiatives Program (FHIP)

The Fair Housing Initiatives Program provides funding to public and private organizations that develop programs that are designed to prevent or eliminate discriminatory housing practices. Below are a list of the available grant opportunities.

Fair Housing Assistance Program (FHAP)

The Fair Housing Assistance Program strengthens nationwide fair housing efforts by helping individual State and local governments administer laws of their own that are consistent with the Federal Fair Housing Act.

Economic Opportunities (Section 3)

The Section 3 program requires that recipients of certain HUD financial assistance, to the greatest extent possible, provide job training, employment, and contract opportunities for low- or very-low income residents in connection with projects and activities in their neighborhoods.
