Arizona is getting more than $150,000 to combat housing discrimination.
The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development announced Thursday that the money is part of a $7.5 million disbursement from the department’s Fair Housing Assistance Program for community education and the enforcement of fair housing laws.
The department says in a statement that the money will be used to partner with law firms to prosecute complaints of housing discrimination.
The money will also be used to train lawyers and to educate people in rural areas about housing rights.
