Notice of Technical Correction to the Notice of Funding Availability (NOFA) for HUD's Fiscal Year (FY) 2010 Fair Housing Initiatives Program (FHIP) Enforcement Testing Technical Assistance (TA) Program.
On April 14, 2011, HUD posted the Notice of Funding Availability (NOFA) for the Fiscal Year (FY) 2010 Fair Housing Initiatives Program (FHIP) Enforcement Testing Technical Assistance (TA) Program to Grants.gov. The NOFA announced the availability of information on applicant eligibility, submission deadlines, funding criteria, and other program and application requirements.
The purpose of the program is to provide technical assistance to one or more entities to develop a course on Fair Housing Testing, and to conduct technical assistance to promote a greater and more consistent use of Testing Methodologies among FHIP organizations. Testing represents the most effective investigative tool in uncovering and corroborating claims of unlawful discrimination. Improving the quality and consistency of testing used by FHIP organizations will increase the persuasiveness and acceptance of tests in litigation. This is designed to provide FHIP organizations with the necessary tools to conduct, understand, and analyze testing with the stated goal of contributing to the Department's enforcement efforts.
The notice providing information regarding the application process, funding criteria and eligibility requirements, application and instructions can be found using the Department of Housing and Urban Development agency link on the Grants.gov/Find Web site at http://www.grants.gov/search/agency.do.
