Fair Housing Initiative Program - Fair Housing Organization Initiative

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 Organizations Initiative (FHOI), Private Enforcement Initiative (PEI) and the Education and Outreach Initiative (EOI).

This Fair Housing Organizations Initiative (FHOI) NOFA makes available $500,000 under the Continued Development Component (CDC).
