HUD announces $23 million in grants to 80 fair housing non-profit organizations

The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) recently awarded nearly $23 million in grants to 80 fair housing non-profit organizations working to fight discrimination in housing. The grants, provided by HUD’s Private Enforcement Initiative (PEI), offer a range of assistance to the nationwide network of fair housing organizations to conduct testing, investigation and litigation of issues under the Fair Housing Act.

Grants are awarded on an annual basis and made available to non-profit organizations. A full list of HUD grant recipients can be found at this link.

Counties play a central role in ensuring fair and affordable housing for residents. In addition to establishing regulatory frameworks for housing around planning, zoning and permitting, counties also provide critical health and human services programs for homeless and low-income residents. Additionally, counties frequently work with non-profits and philanthropic organizations to help provide affordable housing, including organizations receiving HUD fair housing grants.
