Grants - TWO NEW ADDED April 16th!

  • GOAL: The competition is part of our five-year, $125 million initiative to equip community leaders with the capital and tools needed to promote neighborhoods of opportunity where diverse individuals and families at all income levels can thrive.

    DUE: April 22, 2019 at midnight (PST).

    This year’s request for proposal (RFP), seeks strategies in which capital plays a key role in connecting vulnerable communities to greater economic opportunity in neighborhoods. Specifically, we are soliciting proposals for two opportunities:

    1. ‘Planning for Equitable Development Grants’ aka ‘planning grants’ that outline a vision and approach for how a capital strategy by a collaborative of CDFIs can address some of the biggest barriers to opportunity in distressed neighborhoods. Successful applicants will be eligible for a one-year, $100,000 grant. After reviewing the RFP, you can apply online for the planning grants.

    2. ‘Collaborative Capital for Equitable Development’ aka ‘capital grants’ for CDFI Collaboratives that outline how they will create a direct link from capital investments to a larger vision that ensures all residents thrive in place. Successful applicants will be eligible for a three-year grant of up to $5 million. After reviewing the RFP, you can apply online for the capital grants.
