Request a Grant Writer

Grants to USA and Puerto Rico nonprofit organizations for construction projects in eligible communities. Funding is intended to address homelessness. Projects should benefit military veterans.

  • New York, NY
  • Houston, TX
  • Detroit, MI

  • Atlanta, GA
  • Tampa, FL

Project Requirements: 

    • THDF supports new construction or rehabilitation of multifamily, permanent supportive housing for veterans
    • Only physical construction of housing for veterans (hard costs) is covered. THDF does not provide funding for furnishings, rental subsidies, tenant services, etc.
    • The target population of honorably discharged veterans must be at or below 80% AMI
    • 75% of the development/program’s funding sources must be identified at the time of proposal submission
    • At least 20% of the housing units must be reserved for veterans
    • Proposals must provide evidence of a third-party binding agreement that ensures the units are occupied by veterans for a minimum of 15 years. I.e. project-based HUDVASH, other funder requirement, deed restriction, zoning requirement, etc.
