The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) recently awarded over $47 million for conducting investigations, testing to identify discrimination in the rental and sales markets, and filing fair housing complaints. The grants will support the efforts of 120 national and local fair housing organizations working to address violations of the Fair Housing Act and helping to end discrimination in housing.

The grant funding will allow the grantees to provide fair housing enforcement by conducting investigations, testing to identify discrimination in the rental and sales markets, and filing fair housing complaints with HUD. In addition, grantees will carry out education and outreach activities to inform the public, housing providers, and local governments about their rights and responsibilities under the Fair Housing Act. “The fair housing groups’ HUD funds are a critical piece of combatting housing discrimination,” said Jeanine Worden, HUD’s Acting Assistant Secretary for Fair Housing and Equal Opportunity. “The grants will enable 120 fair housing groups to combat unfair evictions and other housing practices that violate the Fair Housing Act.” Join this webinar by our expert speaker Anne Sadovsky to what the testers are looking for and how to avoid getting your property sued.
