ACTION: Announcement of funding awards. AGENCY: SUMMARY: In accordance with section 102(a)(4)(C) of the Department of Housing and Urban Development Reform Act of 1989, this announcement notifies the public of funding decisions made by the Department for funding under the SuperNotice of Funding Availability (SuperNOFA) for the Fair Housing Initiatives Program (FHIP) for Fiscal Year (FY) 2007. This announcement contains the names and addresses of those award recipients selected for funding based on the rating and ranking of all applications and the amount of the awards. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Myron Newry, Director, FHIP Support Division, Office of Programs, Room 5230, 451 Seventh Street, SW., Washington, DC 20410. Telephone number (202) 708–2215 (this is not a toll-free number). A telecommunications device (TTY) for hearing and speech impaired persons is available at 1–800–877–8339 (this is a toll-free number). SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Title VIII of the Civil Rights Act of 1968, as amended, 42 U.S.C. 3601–19 (the Fair Housing Act) charges the Secretary of Housing and Urban Development with responsibility to accept and investigate complaints alleging discrimination based on race, color, religion, sex, handicap, familial status or national origin in the sale, rental, or financing of most housing. In addition, the Fair Housing Act directs the Secretary to coordinate with State and local agencies administering fair housing laws and to cooperate with and render technical assistance to public or private entities carrying out programs to prevent and eliminate discriminatory housing practices. Section 561 of the Housing and Community Development Act of 1987, 42 U.S.C. 3616, established FHIP to strengthen the Department’s enforcement of the Fair Housing Act and to further fair housing. This program assists projects and activities designed to enhance compliance with the Fair Housing Act and substantially equivalent State and local fair housing laws. Implementing regulations are found at 24 CFR part 125. The Department announced under separate solicitations in the Federal Register on January 18, 2007 (72 FR 11, pp 2396–2420 [General Section]) and March 13, 2007 (72 FR 48, pp 11506– 11523), the availability of approximately $18,100,000 out of a FY 2007 appropriation of $20,000,000 and any potential recapture, to be utilized for FHIP projects and activities with approximately $1,900,000 designated for continuation of contracts with activities for the sixth option year under the Accessibility First Project, formerly the Project for Training and Technical Assistance Guidance (PATTG), and other contracts. However, the Office of Management and Budget (Congress) issued a Recession Order and $200,000.00 was charged against the initial appropriation resulting in a reduced appropriation of $19,800,000. Accordingly, the amount available for contracts was reduced to $1,700,000. Funding availability for discretionary grants follows: the Private Enforcement Initiative (PEI/$14,000,000) and the Education and Outreach Initiative (EOI) ($4,100,000). This Notice announces awards of approximately $18,100,000 to 88 organizations and $1,700,000.00 to three contractors. The Department reviewed, evaluated and scored the applications received based on the criteria in the FY 2007 SuperNOFA. As a result, HUD has funded the applications announced in Appendix A, and in accordance with section 102(a)(4)(C) of the Department of Housing and Urban Development Reform Act of 1989 (103 Stat. 1987, 42 U.S.C. 3545), the Department is hereby publishing details concerning the recipients of funding awards in Appendix A of this document. The Catalog of Federal Domestic Assistance Number for currently funded Initiatives under the Fair Housing Initiatives Program is 14.408. Dated: November 13, 2007.

DEPARTMENT OF HOUSING AND URBAN DEVELOPMENT

[Docket No. FR-5100-FA-24]


Announcement of Funding Awards Fair Housing Initiatives Program 
Fiscal Year 2007

AGENCY: Office of the Assistant Secretary for Fair Housing and Equal 
Opportunity, the Department of Housing and Urban Development, HUD.

ACTION: Announcement of funding awards.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

SUMMARY: In accordance with section 102(a)(4)(C) of the Department of 
Housing and Urban Development Reform Act of 1989, this announcement 
notifies the public of funding decisions made by the Department for 
funding under the SuperNotice of Funding Availability (SuperNOFA) for 
the Fair Housing Initiatives Program (FHIP) for Fiscal Year (FY) 2007. 
This announcement contains the names and addresses of those award 
recipients selected for funding based on the rating and ranking of all 
applications and the amount of the awards.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Myron Newry, Director, FHIP Support 
Division, Office of Programs, Room 5230, 451 Seventh Street, SW., 
Washington, DC 20410. Telephone number (202) 708-2215 (this is not a 
toll-free number). A telecommunications device (TTY) for hearing and 
speech impaired persons is available at 1-800-877-8339 (this is a toll-
free number).

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Title VIII of the Civil Rights Act of 1968, 
as amended, 42 U.S.C. 3601-19 (the Fair Housing Act) charges the 
Secretary of Housing and Urban Development with responsibility to 
accept and investigate complaints alleging discrimination based on 
race, color, religion, sex, handicap, familial status or national 
origin in the sale, rental, or financing of most housing. In addition, 
the Fair Housing Act directs the Secretary to coordinate with State and 
local agencies administering fair housing laws and to cooperate with 
and render technical assistance to public or private entities carrying 
out programs to prevent and eliminate discriminatory housing practices.
    Section 561 of the Housing and Community Development Act of 1987, 
42 U.S.C. 3616, established FHIP to strengthen the Department's 
enforcement of the Fair Housing Act and to further fair housing. This 
program assists projects and activities designed to enhance compliance 
with the Fair Housing Act and substantially equivalent State and local 
fair housing laws. Implementing regulations are found at 24 CFR part 
125.
    The Department announced under separate solicitations in the 
Federal Register on January 18, 2007 (72 FR 11, pp 2396-2420 [General 
Section]) and March 13, 2007 (72 FR 48, pp 11506-11523), the 
availability of approximately $18,100,000 out of a FY 2007 
appropriation of $20,000,000 and any potential recapture, to be 
utilized for FHIP projects and activities with approximately $1,900,000 
designated for continuation of contracts with activities for the sixth 
option year under the Accessibility First Project, formerly the Project 
for Training and Technical Assistance Guidance (PATTG), and other 
contracts. However, the Office of Management and Budget (Congress) 
issued a Recession Order and $200,000.00 was charged against the 
initial appropriation resulting in a reduced appropriation of 
$19,800,000. Accordingly, the amount available for contracts was 
reduced to $1,700,000. Funding availability for discretionary grants 
follows: the Private Enforcement Initiative (PEI/$14,000,000) and the 
Education and Outreach Initiative (EOI) ($4,100,000).
    This Notice announces awards of approximately $18,100,000 to 88 
organizations and $1,700,000.00 to three contractors.
    The Department reviewed, evaluated and scored the applications 
received based on the criteria in the FY 2007 SuperNOFA. As a result, 
HUD has funded the applications announced in Appendix A, and in 
accordance with section 102(a)(4)(C) of the Department of Housing and 
Urban Development Reform Act of 1989 (103 Stat. 1987, 42 U.S.C. 3545), 
the Department is hereby publishing details concerning the recipients 
of funding awards in Appendix A of this document.

    The Catalog of Federal Domestic Assistance Number for currently 
funded Initiatives under the Fair Housing Initiatives Program is 
14.408.

    Dated: November 13, 2007.
Kim Kendrick,
Assistant Secretary for Fair Housing and Equal Opportunity.
