TD Charitable Foundation Invites Grant Applications for Affordable Housing Initiatives Focused on Energy Efficiency, Capacity Building, and New Unit Creation
The TD Charitable Foundation, the charitable giving arm of TD Bank, has announced that it will award a total of $2.5 million in grants to support affordable housing initiatives through its sixth annual “Housing for Everyone” grant competition. The competition invites local nonprofit organizations from Maine to Florida to submit proposals outlining their plans and initiatives to support and provide affordable housing initiatives in their communities. This year’s competition theme, “Building for the Future,” focuses on three critical areas in affordable housing: energy efficiency, including weatherization initiatives, HVAC improvements, or implementation of alternative or renewable energy sources; capacity building, including the expansion of programmatic efforts or staff development for organizations that provide affordable housing services for low-to-moderate-income individuals or in low-to-moderate-income communities, as well as infrastructure investment to expand services provided; and new unit creation, where organizations focus their efforts on the creation of new affordable housing units that benefit low-to-moderate-income individuals or communities.Applicant organizations must have tax-exempt 501(c)(3) status; must develop or maintain affordable housing or provide housing-related programs and services to low-to-moderate-income individuals or families; and must serve a community where TD Bank does business. Applicant organizations must also demonstrate fiscal responsibility and the impact they have made on affordable housing efforts in their communities.Twenty-five organizations will be awarded grants of $100,000.
