The Fair Housing Initiatives Program (FHIP) provides funding to fair housing organizations and other nonprofits that assist individuals who believe that they have been victims of housing discrimination.

Examples of activities for continued development of existing eligible organizations may include:
- Change from a fair housing education organization to one which will include an enforcement staff
- Access more sources of expertise or technical assistance, such as hiring persons with investigative skills or legal expertise in lending to work in the organization
- Provide continuing support to organizations recently established under the FHIP’s Establishing New Organization Component (ENOC) and expand testing expertise and experience
Amount: A total of $500,000 is available to make approximately two awards around $250,000 each. The project period is for 12-18 months.
Eligibility: Qualified Fair Housing Enforcement Organizations (QFHOs), Fair Housing Enforcement Organizations (FHOs), and other private nonprofit fair housing enforcement organizations and nonprofit groups building their capacity to provide fair housing enforcement.
