Grants to Washington nonprofit organizations, housing assistance organizations, tribes, housing authorities, and public development authorities to implement innovative housing projects. The purpose of the program is to prevent homelessness and provide accessible housing services. Special consideration will be given to BIPOC-led organizations.

The Washington Youth & Families Fund (WYFF) was created by the Washington State Legislature in 2004 and amended to include youth in 2014. Building Changes administers this fund of public and private dollars to make grants across the state to support innovative housing interventions and strategies.

Through WYFF grantmaking, Building Changes:

  • Identifies and tests promising practices in partnership with providers and community.
  • Collects data and evaluates interventions, models, and programs.
  • Advances strategies informed by research and community.
  • Supports housing and service providers through peer learning, training, and capacity building.

Recognizing the overrepresentation of Black and Indigenous families experiencing homelessness, Building Changes will apply a targeted universalism approach for the 2022 WYFF Funding cycle. Building Changes believes that BIPOC-led and -serving organizations are best positioned to advance the housing and healing services approach they are presenting in this RFP.

Strategic Objectives:

  1. Ending homelessness through flexible funding housing assistance.
  2. Providing healing services that strengthen cultural identity, community, and belonging.
