VHDA’s 2017 Capacity Building Grant Funding

VHDA is pleased to announce the opening of our FY 2017 Capacity Building Grant funding opportunity. Since 2013, this grant program has assisted Virginia non-profits and local governments with building their capacity to better meet the current and future affordable housing needs of the Commonwealth.

“VHDA’s Capacity Building Grant can provide a catalyst for community and organizational change across Virginia. We’re excited to continue VHDA’s support of the long-term sustainability of the Commonwealth’s affordable housing delivery network with a new online application process for our Capacity Building Grant,” said VHDA Managing Director of Community Outreach Mike Hawkins. “We believe this online process will be a useful tool that better serves our partners while facilitating additional grant applications.”

The Capacity Building Grant program is designed to:
  • Increase an organization’s ability to create, preserve and/or manage affordable 
  •     housing units.
  • Expand or bring new housing-related services to an underserved area.
  • Improve an organization’s ability to implement community revitalization 
  •     projects.
  • Establish or strengthen local and/or regional collaboration.
  • Support critical state housing policies (e.g. ending veteran homelessness, etc.)
