Grants and cooperative agreements to USA nonprofit organizations, agencies, public and private entities, and housing organizations to protect citizens in areas affected by the novel Coronavirus (COVID-19) from discrimination in housing-related services. Required registrations may take four weeks or longer to complete.

The purpose of this Notice is to seek applications from eligible entities that will create and disseminate fair housing education and outreach materials in COVID-19 affected areas. During this national emergency, HUD wants to remind housing providers and the public of important federal fair housing laws that protect persons from discrimination, including harassment and intimidation in housing and related services on the basis of race, color, religion, national origin, sex, familial status, and disability. The provision of widespread, highly visible outreach and education activities regarding the Fair Housing Act requirements is essential during this critical time to control the number of Fair Housing Act violations.

National Media Campaign Component

Eligible Activities - Eligible activities shall include (1) Creation of a nationwide media campaign that will inform individuals (particularly the elderly, those with disabilities, and other affected protected classes), and housing providers (landlords, property managers, etc.) of their rights and responsibilities during the COVID-19 pandemic, and (2) Dissemination of this information to non-profits and fair housing organizations in the affected areas. 

General Component

Eligible Activities - Eligible activities are those that inform people of their rights or responsibilities under the Fair Housing Act in COVID-19 affected areas, including the general public, and housing providers (landlords, property managers, etc.). Activities may include, but are not limited to: developing and disseminating fair housing material (i.e. brochures, webinars, and virtual advertising); conducting educational symposia; and providing fair housing information outreach through printed and electronic media into languages applicable to communities in the proposed project area (i.e. Public Service Announcements for radio, television, and newspaper advertisements). Proposed activities including dissemination and educational symposia's must include methods for completing virtual activities or those in which social distancing guidelines are considered.

The application deadline is 11:59:59 pm Eastern Standard time on 07/08/2020. HUD strongly recommends applications be submitted at least 48 hours before the deadline and during regular business hours to allow enough time to correct errors or overcome other problems.

Required Registrations:
- Applicants must be registered with https://www.sam.gov/SAM before submitting their application.
