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 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 Department announced in the Federal Register on March 26, 2002 (67 FR 13826 and 67 FR 14003), the availability of approximately $20,250,000, and any potential recapture, to be utilized for the Fair Housing Initiatives Program for projects and activities through the Private Enforcement Initiative (PEI), the Education and Outreach Initiative (EOI), and the Fair Housing Organizations Initiative (FHOI). This Notice announces the award of approximately $18,249,887.87 of FY 2002 funds in grants to 97 organizations and $1,994,458.00 in 4 contracts to 2 organizations.

The Department reviewed, evaluated and scored the applications received based on the criteria in the FY 2002 SuperNOFA. 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.
