The National Low Income Housing Coalition has launched a new grant program to fund state and local organizations to work to ensure that ERA funds reach renters and small landlords with the greatest need for assistance, especially Black, Indigenous, and people of color (BIPOC) and other marginalized people and communities.
More information from NLIHC:
The National Low Income Housing Coalition is pleased to announce the release of this Request for Proposals to support state and local partners in their efforts to ensure that the unpreceded Emergency Rental Assistance (ERA) funds quickly reach the lowest-income and most marginalized people to ensure the housing stability of the lowest income renters in the short term and to make the case for necessary federal investments in longer-term housing solutions.
This RFP will support 20 – 25 state and local partners in conducting on-the-ground partnership development, capacity building, outreach and education, policy reform and systems change work to ensure that ERA funds reach renters and small landlords with the greatest need for assistance, especially Black, indigenous, and People of Color (BIPOC) and other marginalized people and communities and build support for long term housing solutions. This RFP is being released in coordination with NLIHC’s End Rental Arrears to Stop Evictions (ERASE) State and Local Call to Action.
NLIHC anticipates grants to range from $60,000 – $80,000, though proposals outside this range may be considered.
Please see the attached Request for Proposals for more information and how to apply. Proposals are due to email@example.com by July 20, 2021.
