Grants to USA nonprofit organizations and government agencies in multiple states to improve or create existing housing projects for low-income families from all populations, including new immigrants, mentally or physically disabled individuals, emancipated youth, families headed by a single individual (may be a parent; grandparent; guardian), or veterans.

Funding is intended to increase access to clean, safe, affordable rental housing throughout the funding source's service area, which includes Connecticut, Delaware, Florida, Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New York, New York City, North Carolina, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, South Carolina, Vermont, Virginia, and Washington, DC.

Applications for funding must focus on:

Preservation/Rehabilitation/Expansion of viable existing affordable housing properties: This may include the redesign, reconfiguration and or re-use of existing space in affordable housing properties to create increased quality and quantity of affordable housing units for single parent families and over. Upgrades to systems, structure and efficiency of properties to preserve and prolong their use will be considered.

Focus on needs of the families: Housing programs and services that address the unique needs of Single Parent Families with children in urban, suburban, and rural communities will be viewed favorably. This may include, but is not limited to, proximity to educational opportunities, access to healthcare and medical services, employment opportunities, shopping, community and transportation services, recreational facilities, as well on site services (daycare, before and/or afterschool programs, community rooms, etc.) that would be attractive and supportive to the needs of families.

Utilization of abandoned properties to create new units of affordable housing: In urban, suburban and rural areas, the utilization of underused or abandoned properties to provide permanent or interim housing for low- and moderate- income families provides a tremendous opportunity to reverse neighborhood and community decline.

All initiatives should include a sustainable energy efficiency component which will be considered in the scoring of applications.
