Flint Organization Shares in $1.2 Million Grant from HUD to Fight Housing Discrimination

Facebook

A fair housing organization in Flint is one of four from across the state of Michigan that will share in a $1.2 million grant from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development. The grants will continue the effort to reduce housing discrimination through investigation and testing of alleged discriminatory practices. They will also go toward efforts to educate individuals and groups about rights and responsibilities under the act.

Legal Services of Eastern Michigan will receive just over $266,000 and will use its grant to address the needs of low-income and disabled individuals who have experienced housing related discrimination.

HUD Secretary Shaun Donovan said “ending housing discrimination requires that we support the law of the land and protect the housing rights of individuals and families who would be denied those rights.” The Midwest Regional Administrator for HUD Antonio Riley added “no one should be denied the opportunity to live where they want because of how they look, their faith, whether they have children or because of a disability.”

Organizations in Ann Arbor, Detroit and Grand Rapids were the others who received funds from the grant.
