Fair Housing Group Awarded Grant

(CINCINNATI) -- A fair housing group is a quarter of a million dollars richer.

Housing Opportunites Made Equal got a grant on Thursday to continue their work from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development.

The group president says it's a job that many different people depend on, including children.

"We also have other areas such as the disabilities. All of those still compile discriminatory practices under the fair housing law and home is here to combat those issues," said Harold Jones, HOME president.

Jones says HOME will have other events later this year to keep the issue of fair housing in the public eye.
