Title VIII of the Civil Rights Act of 1968, as amended, 42 U.S.C. 3601-19 (the Fair Housing Act) provides 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 Start Printed Page 58828and 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 published its Fair Housing Initiatives Program (FHIP) NOFA on July 23, 2009 announcing the availability of approximately $26.3 million authorized by out of the Omnibus Appropriations Act, 2009 (Pub. L. 111-8, approved March 11, 2009) to be utilized for FHIP projects and activities. Funding availability for discretionary grants included: the Private Enforcement Initiative (PEI) ($21.1 million), the Education and Outreach Initiative (EOI) ($3.1 million), and the Fair Housing Organizations Initiative (FHOI) ($2.1 million).

This Notice announces grant awards of approximately $26.3 million, and funding for Fair Housing Accessibility First (FIRST) training. FIRST is a major training initiative to assist architects, builders, disability advocates and others with understanding how to design and construct multifamily housing that complies with the Act.

For the FY 2009 NOFA, the Department reviewed, evaluated and scored the applications received based on the criteria in the FY2009 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.
