Grounded Solutions Network—a national nonprofit organization that cultivates equitable and inclusive communities through innovative affordable housing solutions—is seeking applications for a new affordable housing initiative. Applications are due by February 28, 2019.
“ForEveryoneHome: City Solutions for Housing Equity” is an 18-month program that will help a select group of cities chart a path to inclusive growth through lasting affordability. This initiative targets mixed-market cities where changing conditions threaten to displace low-income communities of color. Our goal is to “get ahead of the curve” in these communities, catalyzing action to protect affordability and diversity in changing neighborhoods before displacement pressures become too great.
Thanks to substantial underwriting from the Ford Foundation, ForEveryoneHome provides a 2-to-1 match of local funds committed to this effort. This is a real opportunity for communities to stretch their limited policy-making dollars for maximum impact.
For more details on the initiative and application instructions, please see the ForEveryoneHome webpage.
