PCHTF opens applications for Capacity Building Grant Program

PCHTF opens applications for Capacity Building Grant Program

This week, PCHTF began accepting applications for $150,000 available through its annual Capacity Building Grant Program. These funds support creative programs that introduce new units into the community’s affordable housing inventory or preserve existing inventory.

Applicants for capacity building grants must be nonprofit organizations or municipal corporations operating in Polk County. While this program does not support housing development, it does support non-bricks and mortar programs that either introduce new affordable housing units to the community’s inventory, that prevent an existing unit from being lost, or assist in more quickly opening existing inventory for eligible owners or tenants.

Applications are due for this program at noon on Tuesday, July 12, 2022. The application and program details can be found online at https://pchtf.formstack.com/forms/2023_capacity_building_application.

Questions about this grant offering may be directed to Mollie Giller, the Trust Fund's Director of Programs & Supportive Services, at mgiller@pchtf.org.
