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 several 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 CDC provides funds to eligible non-profit fair housing organizations to build their capacity and effectiveness to conduct enforcement related activities eligible for funding such as but not limited to: investigating housing discrimination allegations based on sexual orientation and gender identity, source of income or religious bias, or expanding testing experience in mortgage lending discrimination or appraisal bias.
The ENOC provides funds to Qualified Fair Housing Enforcement Organizations (QFHOs) (“sponsoring organizations”) to establish new, separate organizations (“sponsored organizations”) to engage in fair housing work, particularly in areas of the country which are currently unserved or underserved by fair housing enforcement organizations. Eligible activities under the ENOC are those that establish a single organization to become a viable regional/local fair housing enforcement organization that will conduct testing and other fair housing enforcement-related activities.
