The Fair Housing Center is a recipient of a Google Ad Grant. The Google Ad Grants program supports registered nonprofit organizations, including many that share Google’s philosophy of community service to help the world in areas such as science and technology, education, global public health, the environment, youth advocacy, and the arts. Google Ad Grants is an in-kind advertising program that awards free online advertising to nonprofits. The FHC has been a recipient since 2010.

Our office and three other Michigan Fair Housing Centers entered into a new education and testing contract with the Michigan State Housing Development Authority. The project will take us beyond our 10 counties as we work with our colleagues to monitor subsidized housing across the state. This 5 year contract began on July 1, 2022.
We currently have two grants with our largest partner, the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development. A Private Enforcement Initiative grant (used for the testing of new complaints, advocacy for people with disabilities, recruiting and training testers, and making attorney referrals for litigation), and an Education and Outreach grant to create new advertisements on buses, social media outreach, fair housing education workshops, advanced Housing Advocates Training, as well as brochure distribution in four languages.
The United Way of Washtenaw County awarded the FHC a three-year Community Impact grant to increase Washtenaw County-based fair housing enforcement, education, tester recruitment, local ordinance testing and enforcement, as well as to expand our fundraising capacity. They also supported our Catchafire grant.
The Washtenaw County Office of Community & Economic Development New Human Services Partnership awarded the Fair Housing Center with a Mini-Grant to expand our non-grant related fundraising. The main goal of this funding is to provide smaller organizations who are addressing poverty, racism, and trauma as a root cause of institutional inequity in Washtenaw County an opportunity to receive funding.
