The Home Depot Foundation welcomes applications for its Veteran Housing Grants Program.
Through the program, grants ranging between $100,000 and $500,000 will be awarded in support of the construction and rehabilitation of permanent supportive multi-family housing for veterans. Grants will be awarded solely for the physical construction of such housing (i.e., hard costs). THDF does not provide funding for soft costs such as furnishings, rental subsidies, tenant services, etc. The target population served through the program is honorably discharged veterans at or below 80 percent AMI.
Priority will be given to "large" cities, defined by the foundation as those with populations of more than three hundred thousand people. The foundation has identified a specific focus on projects located in the following cities: Atlanta, Chicago, Denver, Detroit, Houston, Los Angeles, New York, San Diego, Seattle, and Tampa.
To be eligible, applicants must be tax exempt under section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code; have been in good standing with the Internal Revenue Service for at least five years; and have a current operating budget of at least $300,000.
