Title VIII of the Civil Rights Act of 1968, as amended, 42 U.S.C. 3601-19 (the Fair Housing Act) charges the Secretary of Housing and Urban Development with responsibility to accept and investigate complaints alleging discrimination based on race, color, religion, sex, handicap, familial status or national origin in the sale, rental, or financing of most housing. In addition, the Fair Housing Act directs the Secretary to coordinate with state and local agencies administering fair housing laws and to cooperate with and render technical assistance to public or private entities carrying out programs to prevent and eliminate discriminatory housing practices.

Section 561 of the Housing and Community Development Act of 1987, 42 U.S.C. 3616, established the FHIP to strengthen the Department's enforcement of the Fair Housing Act and to further fair housing. This program assists projects and activities designed to enhance compliance with the Fair Housing Act and substantially equivalent state and local fair housing laws. Implementing regulations are found at 24 CFR part 125.

The FHIP has three active funding categories: The Education and Outreach Initiative (EOI), the Private Enforcement Initiative (PEI), and the Fair Housing Organizations Initiative (FHOI). This Notice announces awards made, primarily, under EOI, PEI and FHOI, as well as award(s) under National Programs and other special funding categories.

The Department announced in the Federal Register on February 26, 2001 (66 FR 11638 and 66 FR 11793), the availability of approximately $16,500,000, out of an appropriation of $24,000,000, and any potential recapture, to be utilized for the FHIP for projects and activities through PEI, EOI, FHOI with the remaining approximately $7,500,000 designated to the National Housing Discrimination Audit 2001. Additionally, on July 25, 2001 (66 FR 38846) the availability of approximately $1,000,000 for a 24-month period was announced under a separate Notice of Funding Availability (NOFA) under the EOI—National Program—Model Codes Partnership Component (MCPC). Although the MCPC was first published in the Federal Register on February 24, 2000, no timely applications were received.

This Notice announces the award of approximately $16,336,127 million of FY 2001 grant funding to 94 organizations that submitted applications under the February 26, 2001 SuperNOFA and the award of six contracts to four organizations for approximately $5,498,754.10 for the National Housing Discrimination Study and other purposes. This Notice further announces the award of approximately $1,874,519.00 of FY 2000 funding to 2 organizations, which included an award to 1 organization under the July 25, 2001, NOFA. Finally, this notice announces the award of approximately $1,999,712 in FY 2001 funding to two National EOI programs plus another $72,000 for partial funding of one FHOI/ENOC program for applications submitted under the March 26, 2002 SuperNOFA.

The Department reviewed, evaluated and scored the applications received based on the criteria in the February 26, 2001 SuperNOFA and the July 25, 2001 NOFA. As a result, HUD has funded the applications announced in Appendix A, and in accordance with section 102(a)(4)(C) of the Department of Housing and Urban Development Reform Act of 1989 (103 Stat. 1987, 42 U.S.C. 3545), the Department is hereby publishing details concerning the recipients of funding awards in Appendix A of this document.

The Catalog of Federal Domestic Assistance Number for currently funded Initiatives under the Fair Housing Initiatives Program is 14.408.
