Community Foundation of Greater Des Moines Announces Support

The Polk County Housing Trust Fund (PCHTF) was recently selected as a grant recipient by the Community Foundation with an award of $30,000.

“The Polk County Housing Trust Fund is an expert leader in affordable housing,” said Kristi Knous, President and Chief Operating Officer at the Community Foundation of Greater Des Moines. “The organization is committed to supporting local housing organizations and understanding the impact those organizations have in our community. We were pleased to learn more about the Housing Trust Fund’s strategic plan to guide their work and looking at new ways of addressing affordable housing.”

 “The understanding that affordable housing is both a social and economic development issue was evident by the questions asked during the Community Foundation’s assessment of our results to date and future plans,” said Eric Burmeister, Executive Director at PCHTF. “Without a doubt, Affordable Workforce Housing is a key part of our strategic focus and one of the most significant ways we can impact the health and vibrancy of our employers, employees, communities and families.”
