More HUD Funds to Fight Housing Discrimination

April 24, 2022

More HUD Funds to Fight Housing Discrimination
Every April, the Department of Housing and Urban Development commemorates Fair Housing Month. In 2022, it’s probably not a coincidence that April is also the month HUD announced a plan to use funds from the American Rescue Plan to support HUD Fair Housing actions to fight discrimination. And more specifically, housing discrimination related to the COVID-19 pandemic.

HUD published a press release announcing funding over $3,000,000 intended to be shared among qualifying organizations that accept funding through the FHIP Private Enforcement Initiative. According to HUD, this funding may be used for Fair Housing Act enforcement, education, and outreach projects.

This isn’t the first time American Rescue Plan funds have been used to fight housing discrimination related to the Coronavirus pandemic. According to HUD, the latest effort is the third of its kind and approximately $16 million has been distributed to more than sixty agencies working to raise awareness and end discrimination.

“The COVID-19 pandemic continues to reveal inequities in housing opportunities for many communities,” says Demetria McCain, HUD Principal Deputy Assistant Secretary for Fair Housing and Equal Opportunity. 

She was quoted in a press release on the HUD official site and adds, “Our fair housing partners will utilize these additional funds to oppose discriminatory practices and safeguard housing rights for American families.”

HUD reminds partner agencies that this funding must be applied for. It is not automatically awarded. Agencies interested in this type of funding are advised by HUD to get application forms at www.Grants.gov

Housing discrimination doesn’t come in just one type. Violations of the Fair Housing Act can include discrimination against those who care for or who are themselves patients who suffer from COVID-19. 

If you have been discriminated against during the pandemic, and/or because of it, should file a Fair Housing complaint with the HUD Office of Fair Housing and Equal Opportunity by phone at (800) 669-9777 (voice) or (800) 877-8339 (Relay). 

Housing discrimination complaints can be filed online at www.hud.gov/fairhousing

Sometimes the only people with the power to prevent future abuses and discrimination in housing are the victims of discrimination. Filing a complaint makes it possible for HUD to investigate and prosecute where appropriate.
