LANSING, Mich. (AP) - Five organizations in Michigan have received $1.7 million in federal grants to address housing discrimination.

The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development announced the awards Wednesday for four fair housing centers and one legal services agency across the state. The money will help enforce the Fair Housing Act through investigations and testing of possibly discriminatory practices.

The organizations in Detroit, Grand Rapids, Kalamazoo, Ann Arbor and Flint will also work to educate housing providers, local governments and residents about their rights and responsibilities.
