Description: HUD is making available through this FHOI NOFA $500,000 for Fair Housing Initiatives Program. Additional funds may become available for award under this NOFA as a result of HUD's efforts to recapture unused funds, use carryover funds, or because of the availability of additional appropriated funds. Use of these funds will be subject to statutory constraints. All awards are subject to the applicable funding restrictions described in this NOFA. Funding for additional years beyond FY2018 is subject to the availability of appropriations. FHIP funds are used to increase compliance with the Fair Housing Act. This year, funding is available under three Initiatives: Private Enforcement (PEI), Fair Housing Organization (FHOI) and Education and Outreach (EOI) Initiatives. However, for FY2018, funding for each initiative is listed under a separate NOFA. Applicants must apply under the correct NOFA to be considered for funding. Additionally, if an applicant is eligible and applying for funding under separate initiatives and/or components, the applicant must submit a separate application under the correct NOFA for each component the applicant applies. This NOFA will consider applicants applying under the FHOI Initiative only. The following is a general description of FHOI (see chart in section III. A. for all eligibility requirements and component listing): Fair Housing Organization Initiative (FHOI). This Initiative provides funding to establish new fair housing enforcement organizations and to support the continued existence of fair housing organizations in building their capacity to enforce the prohibitions on discrimination set forth in the Fair Housing Act. HUD will award grants/cooperative agreements under each FHOI component based on eligibility: a. Fair Housing Organization Initiative (FHOI) – (1) Continued Development General Component (CDGC) – $500,000; Applicants may apply for funding under each FHIP NOFA and under multiple Initiatives/Components as long as the applicant applies under the correct NOFA and meets the specific eligibility requirements for each (see eligibility chart in Section III.A.1).
