The Homeless Assistance Fund works to break the cycle of homelessness in Philadelphia by providing access, opportunities, and support to homeless individuals and families, with the goal of helping them transition from shelters into permanent housing.
In support of its mission, the organization is accepting applications from homeless service programs that assist families with children and/or unaccompanied youth between the ages of 16 and 25 who are experiencing homelessness. Programs must prioritize access to permanent housing and provide solutions focused on long-term stability.
Grants of up to $70,000 over two years may be used for program staffing as well as direct housing costs, including rental assistance, security deposits, the purchase of furniture, and utilities.
To be eligible, programs must serve homeless youth or families with children in Philadelphia.
See the Homeless Assistance Fund website for program guidelines, eligibility criteria, and application instructions.
