Grants to USA nonprofit organizations and eligible agencies to increase organizational capacity to improve housing practices. Applicants are advised that required registrations may take several weeks to complete. Funding is intended to strengthen organizational capacity in fair housing-related activities by increasing enforcement or expanding testing expertise and experience.
The Fair Housing Initiatives Program (FHIP) funds 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.
This Fair Housing Organizations Initiative (FHOI) NOFA makes available $500,000 under the Continued Development Component (CDC). The CDC component provides funds to non-profit fair housing organizations to build their capacity and effectiveness to conduct enforcement related activities.
Eligible activities are those that build the capacity of an organization to become a viable fair housing enforcement organization (QFHO or FHO) and/or expand the services of an existing QFHO or FHO. Examples of eligible activities may include but are not limited to: (1) adding an enforcement staff or conducting enforcement-related activities; and (2) expanding testing expertise and experience.
