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 Department announced in the Federal Register on April 25, 2003 (68 FR 21001-21082 and 21195-21240), the availability of approximately $17,618,375 out of an appropriation of $20,118,375 and any potential recapture, to be utilized for the FHIP projects and activities through the Education and Outreach Initiative (EOI), including an EOI—National Program—Model Codes Partnership Component (MCPC), the Private Enforcement Initiative (PEI), and the Fair Housing Organizations Initiative (FHOI). The remaining approximately $2,500,000 is designated “for contracts, including the continuation of activities for the third option year under the Project for Training and Technical Assistance Guidance (PATTG) [announced under a previous solicitation] and in furtherance of fair housing education and outreach to meet HUD's Minority Serving Institution (MSI) goals. The funds to further the Department's goals to work with MSIs will be announced under a separate solicitation.” This Notice was amended on June 17, 2003 (68 FR 36426-36444) to make certain technical corrections.

This Notice announces the award of approximately $18,534,463.78 in grants to 120 organizations and $1,400,000.00 in a contract to 1 organization.

The Department reviewed, evaluated and scored the applications received based on the criteria in the fiscal year 2003 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.
