The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) recently awarded over $23 million to nearly 80 fair housing organizations working to protect consumers from housing discrimination through their Private Enforcement Initiative (PEI). These grants will be used by fair housing organizations across the country so they can carry out testing and enforcement activities. Be sure to look at the list of recipients in your city and state.
“It’s been 50 years since the passage of the Fair Housing Act, yet the fight against housing discrimination continues,” said Secretary Ben Carson. “Today we are making another investment to support our fair housing partners and protect families from discrimination.”
