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 under separate solicitations in the Federal Register on January 20, 2006 (71 FR 3382-3404) and March 8, 2006 (71 FR 11712-11717 and 11784-11799), the availability of approximately $18,100,000 out of a FY 2006 appropriation of $20,000,000 and any potential recapture, to be utilized for FHIP projects and activities with approximately $1,900,000 designated for continuation of contracts with activities for the fifth option year under the Accessibility First Project, formerly the Project for Training and Technical Assistance Guidance (PATTG) and other contracts. However, Pub. L. 109-148 mandated a 1 percent rescission and, accordingly, $200,000.00 was charged against the initial appropriation resulting in a reduced appropriation of $19,800,000. Subsequently, the amount available for contracts was reduced to $1,700,000.00, and any potential recapture.

Additionally, on June 14, 2006 (71 FR 34385), the Department extended the application submission date for applicants submitting proposals from areas affected by the President's Emergency Declaration for the State of Maine, the Commonwealth of Massachusetts, and the State of New Hampshire. Funding availability follows for discretionary grants: the Private Enforcement Initiative (PEI/$13,900,000) and the Education and Outreach Initiative (EOI) ($4,200,000).

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

This notice announces the award of $18,100,000 to 102 organizations that submitted applications under the FY2006 funding round or received continuation funding under the PEI Performance-Based Funding Component. The Department reviewed, evaluated and scored the applications received based on the criteria in the FY2006 SuperNOFA. As a result, 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.
