Boston MA —
Twelve members of the Housing Partnership Network are sharing $2 million in grants to support innovative programs that offer new solutions to the ongoing challenges of neighborhood stabilization. The awards are funded under the Innovations in Neighborhood Stabilization and Foreclosure Prevention Initiative, created with a $2.75 million grant from the Citi Foundation to the Housing Partnership Network. Grantees were announced on September 2nd.
The awards support exceptional projects that can yield important lessons, are scalable and replicable, and have the potential to achieve greater national impact. During the two-year grant period, and at its conclusion, the Network will host convenings of Network grantees, other key thought leaders from the housing and community development sectors, policymakers, and business partners to share best practices and learnings from the initiative. The goal is to have a significant and positive impact on neighborhood stabilization efforts and to shape new policy responses to this issue.
Grant awards were determined through a competitive RFP process. Twelve grantees were chosen from thirty-one applications submitted. Grants were available only to Network members. Assisting in the evaluation and selection were members of an Innovations Initiative Advisory Committee comprised of internal and external experts from the housing field.
Awards were granted to the following members: Atlanta Neighborhood Development Partnership, Inc.; Boston Community Capital; Cleveland Housing Network; HAP Housing; Housing Development Fund; Mercy Housing Lakefront; Neighborhood Housing Services of Chicago; Neighborhood Housing Services of New York in partnership with the Long Island Housing Partnership and the New York Mortgage Coalition; NHT/Enterprise Preservation Corporation ; and Project for Pride in Living.
