What HUD Paid Shoppers/Testers Look For That Can Get Your Property Sued
HUD awarded over $47 million for conducting investigations, testing to identify discrimination in the rental and sales markets, and filing fair housing complaints.
The grants will support the efforts of 120 national and local fair housing organizations working to address violations of the Fair Housing Act. The grant funding will allow grantees to provide fair housing enforcement by conducting investigations, testing to identify discrimination in the rental and sales markets, and filing fair housing complaints with HUD. In addition, grantees will carry out education and outreach activities to inform the public, housing providers, and local governments about their rights and responsibilities under the Fair Housing Act.
