INDIANAPOLIS (AP) - The Fair Housing Center of Central Indiana has received a three-year, $975,000 grant to fight housing discrimination.

The center announced Wednesday the grant from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development will be used to investigate allegations of housing discrimination, to promote equal housing opportunities, and to educate the public and the housing industry about their rights and responsibilities under the federal Fair Housing Act.

The Fair Housing Center says that in each of the past two years, it has received or recorded at least 125 allegations of housing discrimination in central Indiana. It has found what it calls high levels of housing discrimination against persons of color and people with disabilities.
