Sponsored Projects Program - Fee for Service

Through the Sponsored Projects Program, we provide a supportive infrastructure to projects working to bring equitable and inclusive opportunities for home repair/rehab,  home modification for greater livability, neighborhood sustainability, and affordable housing preservation.

The Sponsored Projects Program offers fiscal sponsorship and administrative services to projects working to ensure affordable, healthy, and safe housing for all. Fiscal sponsorship is a legal relationship through which a 501(c)(3) public charitable organization sponsors an individual or group that requires the benefits of the sponsoring organization's tax-exempt status to realize a project.

Local Home Repair Coalition Building Program 

The Coalition offers technical assistance to support the creation and development of local Home Repair Coalitions (HRC) that may comprise nonprofits, government entities, and most importantly home repair beneficiaries.  The intent is to limit silos that affect policy, funding, and community engagement that affect affordable housing and homeownership preservation for low and moderate-income households. 

We seek to address the environmental, societal, and political factors that deplete affordable housing quality, attainability, and sustainability in the United States one community at a time. By fostering a collaborative and multi-sector approach, we can get all hands on deck committed to their specialty (housing, health, climate change, homelessness, finance security), but with a shared purpose and measurable goals.
