THDF does not provide funding for soft costs, such as furnishings, rental subsidies, tenant services, etc.
Organizations or individuals with projects focused on single home construction or repair would not qualify for this program and may be a better fit for the Community Impact Grant programs. Single repair requests should reach out to the National Partners who are already funded to assist qualifying veterans.
THDF grant funding must comprise less than 50% of the total development cost of the project/program.
75% of the development/program’s funding sources have been identified at the time of proposal submission.
