ATLANTA (AP) - The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development has awarded an Atlanta group a grant to fight housing discrimination in Georgia.

Federal officials said in a statement Wednesday that Metro Fair Housing Services Inc. has been awarded a $325,000 grant. The money is part of $38.3 million in grants that have been given to more than 100 fair housing groups across the country.

Officials say Metro Fair Housing Services will use the money to open a satellite office in north Gwinnett County to expand access to people near Forsyth, Hall, Barrow and Jackson Counties. Officials say the satellite office will offer education and outreach, complaint intake and more.
