FHEO is responsible for the Department's Title VI enforcement activities. HUD administers a number of federally assisted programs aimed at both increasing the availability of housing and promoting community economic development. In addition to the civil rights statutes pertaining to HUD's federally assisted and federally conducted programs, FHEO is responsible for enforcing the fair housing laws and the Americans with Disabilities Act. FHEO is concerned with discrimination based on race, color, religion, sex, national origin, age, or disability. It seeks conciliation, holds hearings, conducts studies, provides testimony for litigation, and offers public education programs and training and technical assistance.
