Funding Opportunity Announcement

The Inclusive Communities Fund Grant Program at NFHA reinvests fair housing settlement funds intended for community relief into neighborhoods or populations that have been destabilized by housing discrimination. Inclusive Communities empowers all individuals to access safe, sustainable housing of choice; creates inclusive, healthy, and well-resourced neighborhoods of opportunity; and addresses systemic barriers that limit equitable housing opportunities for everyone.

NFHA is seeking applications for its Inclusive Communities Fund Grant Program by October 14, 2022.

The Inclusive Communities Fund is seeking local partners in 16 metropolitan areas to provide direct services to families and communities. Grants will be provided to our local partners to undertake activities that support Black and Latino communities to access housing (with an emphasis on homeownership) and that support more inclusive, vibrant and healthy neighborhoods. These funds were made available as part of a historic settlement that provided $35.390 million for community relief.

Grants are available to support activities in the following metropolitan areas:
