U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) - Fair Housing and Equal Opportunity (FHEO)

Grants to USA nonprofit fair housing organizations for activities that ensure just housing during the Coronavirus (COVID-19) crisis. Applicants are advised that required registrations can take several weeks to complete. Funding is intended to support projects to address fair housing inquiries and complaints, to conduct investigations and education and outreach activities, and to assist with costs of delivering or adapting services during or relating to the pandemic.
The American Rescue Plan: Fair Housing Initiatives Program-Private Enforcement Initiative (PEI) Component invites applications from eligible PEI organizations seeking support for fair housing enforcement activities that are connected to or adversely impacted by the coronavirus pandemic. Through this funding opportunity, HUD will award grants to Qualified Fair Housing Enforcement Organizations (QFHO) and Fair Housing Enforcement Organizations (FHO) to help them continue to advance their mission during the interruption of their operation due to the coronavirus pandemic.
The Department encourages projects that reflect on the organization’s quest for a more just, inclusive, and sustainable society. The Department especially welcomes projects that ensure victims of housing discrimination who have been hit the hardest during or relating to the coronavirus pandemic are provided with the resources and support they need to emerge from the pandemic stronger. Funds can be used by fair housing organizations to equitably expand housing activities for underserved populations who need their services the most, including victims or complainants from low-income backgrounds, African Americans, Hispanics, Asian Americans, Pacific Islanders, persons with disabilities and other members of minority groups as well as people experiencing or on the verge of housing instability or homelessness, including those that may face possible displacement due to the end of the eviction and foreclosure moratoriums, senior citizens and people with disabilities who are trying to leave the heightened risk of coronavirus associated with institutions or congregate settings, and people with inadequate access to technology.
Funds may be used to address pandemic-related fair housing issues as well as the many impacts during or relating to the coronavirus pandemic on fair housing organizations, including, but not limited to the following eligible activities:
