Applications for the Polk County Housing Trust Fund's Programs and Supportive Services (PSS) grant opportunity are open until March 28, 2023 at noon. Here's what to know if you're a non-profit organization thinking about applying.
These PSS funds support non-profit 501c3 organizations helping Polk County residents find safe, stable housing. Programs can support individuals earning at or below 80% of Area Median Income and support for extremely low income individuals (at or under 30% of AMI are preferred).
Grant recommendations are made by a funding committee and approved by the PCHTF board of directors. Applications are evaluated by the program's ability to help people find stable housing (defined as living at the same address one to two years or longer) as well as how the programs contribute to affordability, justice and accessibility of housing.
PSS funds are contributed by businesses, organizations, and individuals in our community who invest in our Stable Steady Strong campaign. You can join them by giving online at PCHTF.org/donate.
