HUD Allocates $26 Million to Combat Housing Discrimination



The Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) has announced the allocation of $26 million in funds to support fair housing efforts across the nation. Distributed through its Fair Housing Assistance Program, this noncompetitive funding is designed for state and local fair housing enforcement agencies to bolster investigations into discrimination complaints and conduct educational outreach programs.

Acting HUD Secretary Adrianne Todman emphasized the critical role of partnerships in eradicating housing discrimination, underscoring the agency’s commitment to upholding fair housing standards. The $26 million allotment for fiscal year 2024 will benefit 77 enforcement agencies, which will have collectively witnessed a 6 percent rise in case processing over the past year.

These funds will support the enforcement of fair housing laws and safeguard individuals against discrimination to ensure inclusive and just housing opportunities.
