GrantWatch ID#: 174826
Agency Type:

Foundation / Corporation

The Home Depot Foundation


Large grants to USA and Puerto Rico nonprofit organizations to develop new housing projects, or repair existing structures, for veterans. Funding will be provided for new construction projects or rehab and repair projects for either single-family or multifamily structures, permanent supportive housing, or transitional housing for veterans.

The funded housing repair and construction projects are intended to benefit honorably discharged veterans, at or below 80% AMI, as the target population.

Awards typically range from $100,000 to $500,000.

The amount of funding requested should not exceed $20,000 per veteran unit.

Multi-family rental projects must commence within the next twelve months.

Eligible Applicants:
- Grants are only awarded to 501(c)3 nonprofit organizations that have been in good standing with the Internal Revenue Service for at least five years.
- Organizations must have a current operating budget of at least $300,000 and audited financial statements from the past three years.
- Organizations should have previous experience developing, and either currently manage or own, veteran specific housing.
- For multifamily rental projects, the nonprofit/s must have a 15+ year ownership stake in the development.

Organizations or individuals with projects focused on single home construction or repair would not qualify for this program.

- At least 20% of the units are reserved for veterans.
- Proposals requesting above $100,000 must provide evidence of a third party binding agreement that ensures the units are: (a) reserved for veterans, and (b) occupied by veterans for a minimum of fifteen years for rental or three years for homeownership (i.e., project-based HUDVASH, other funder requirement, deed restriction, zoning requirement, etc.).
