Nonprofit Grants

Strengthening our communities through funding and collaboration

We're all in this together

It takes more than just money to build better communities—it also takes a human connection.

By building relationships within our communities, we're looking to address the challenges people face every day. Things like affordable housing, health care, and nutrition. Our grants also help with longer-term solutions, such as access to capital for small businesses, vocational training, and mentoring.

  • The development of comprehensive solutions to meet market needs to increase the inventory of affordable housing
  • Organizations that advocate on issues related to affordable housing
  • Housing sustainability to include eviction, foreclosure and displacement prevention

Essential Community Services

  • Operations/programs that focus on providing health care, mental health, elder care and addiction services to LMI individuals and families

Small Business Access to Capital

  • Nonprofits providing access to capital and/or technical assistance to businesses located within government-designated business districts targeted for revitalization or stabilization
