FHAC Receives $275,000 Enforcement Grant from U.S. Department of HUD to Further Equal Housing Opportunity

Posted on 25. Oct, 2007 by

On October 25, 2007, at 10:00 a.m. in the Melrose Room at the Hilton Riverside Hotel, Assistant Secretary of the US Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) Kim Kendrick presented the Greater New Orleans Fair Housing Action Center (GNOFHAC) with a grant for the maximum amount allotted under the Fair Housing Initiatives Program (FHIP): $275,000. The grant will allow GNOFHAC staff to continue investigating complaints of housing discrimination and enforcing the federal Fair Housing Act of 1968, which protects against housing discrimination on the basis of race, color, national origin, sex, disability, familial status, and religion.

GNOFHAC Executive Director James Perry comments, “The most difficult step in battling housing discrimination is finding funding sources to support the work. HUD’s commitment to partner with us for a second consecutive year allows us the means to continue to confront housing discrimination on a daily basis.”
