Home Depot Foundation Announces 2009 Affordable Housing Built Responsibly Grant Program

Deadline: March 1, 2009 and July 1, 2009 (Letters of Inquiry)

Through the Affordable Housing Built Responsibly grant program, the Home Depot Foundation ( administers funding to nonprofit organizations whose missions align with the foundation’s interests in supporting the production and preservation of affordable, efficient, and healthy housing.

The foundation makes grants to 501(c)(3) tax-exempt public charities in the United States and to charitable organizations in Canada. To better support its mission, the Home Depot Foundation awards most of its grants by directly soliciting proposals from high-performing nonprofit organizations with demonstrated ability to create strong partnerships, impact multiple communities, and leverage grant resources. In order to identify potential future nonprofit partners or respond to unique community revitalization opportunities, a limited amount of unsolicited grant funding is set aside to be awarded through a competitive process.

Preference is given to proposals that encourage community involvement and result in the production, preservation, or financing of housing units for low- to moderate-income families. The most promising proposals will incorporate a number of “green” building design practices. Also, in 2009, preference will be given to proposals that clearly demonstrate how urban forestry strategies will be utilized to create healthier, more vibrant communities.

The foundation makes Affordable Housing Built Responsibly grant decisions three times per year and grants typically range from $50,000 to $125,000 each.

Letters of inquiry are due on March 1, 2009 and July 1, 2009. The foundation will consider only one proposal from the same organization per calendar year.
