Age-Friendly Funding Alert: Advancing Health Equity Through Housing Funding Opportunity

Jul 25, 2018

The Kresge Foundation is offering a funding opportunity that aims to support innovative, multi-sector solutions to housing instability, generated by community residents, that improve housing affordability and quality through policy and practice changes. 

The Foundation seeks to identify and accelerate community-led policy and system changes that reduce displacement, segregation and gentrification, support innovative funding strategies that better connect housing and health sectors and recognize multi-sector partnerships that preserve and increase the supply of stable housing for improved health, well-being and health equity in low-income communities.

Planning grants (up to one year $100,000) and general operating support and programmatic grants (up to two years, $200,000 per year) are being made available.

It is anticipated that there will be additional funding opportunities in this category in late 2018 and 2019.
