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.
