Fannie Mae Foundation Accepting Applications for Competitive Grants Program
Deadline: April 13, 2004

The Washington, D.C.-based Fannie Mae Foundation (<a href=""></a>) works to create affordable home ownership and housing opportunities through partnerships and initiatives designed to build healthy, vibrant communities across the United States.

The foundation will award most of its 2004 grants by directly soliciting proposals from organizations. The foundation has also set aside a limited amount of grant funding for which nonprofit organizations may apply through a competitive application process. Most of these competitive grants will provide general operating support to nonprofit organizations to help build their capacity, increase their impact, and operate more efficiently and effectively.

The foundation will accept grant requests from national, regional, and local organizations working to achieve one or more of the following goals:

Increase the Affordable Housing Supply — Eligible organizations are those working city-, county-, region-, or nationwide to increase the supply of affordable housing.

Increase Sustainable Home ownership and Build Individual and Community Wealth — Eligible organizations are those with proven experience providing comprehensive pre- and post-purchase home ownership counseling and education resulting in sustainable home ownership that builds individual and community wealth.

Create Healthy and Vibrant Neighborhoods in Washington, D.C. — Eligible organizations are those working in the District of Columbia to preserve rental and home ownership units that are at risk of conversion to market-rate housing; or working to improve adult literacy or improve education by providing teacher professional development, curriculum content aligned with D.C. public school curriculum standards, or principal training in instructional leadership.

For complete eligibility criteria, funding priorities, and an online application form, see the Fannie Mae Foundation Web site.
