Enterprise Foundation’s Rouse Award to Honor Excellence in Community Revitalization
Deadline: April 8, 2005

The Enterprise Foundation (<a href=""></a>) is accepting applications for the 2005 Jim & Patty Rouse Award for excellence in community revitalization. The program is designed to broaden understanding of success in community development by disseminating best practices by nonprofit organizations and to provide unrestricted funds to deserving organizations.

Community-based and regional nonprofit organizations as well as Tribes/Tribally Designated Housing Entities (TDHEs) that develop affordable housing and are engaged in comprehensive community revitalization efforts are eligible to apply. Applicants must be members of the Enterprise Foundation Network and must develop and provide housing to low- and very low-income individuals or families. In addition, applicants must have worked to restore the fabric of the communities in which they work and create a sense of place, with particular emphasis on life opportunities for residents.

Each year, one or two winning organizations will receive a grant award of $5,000 in unrestricted funds. In addition to the grant, the award winner will receive one complimentary registration to the network’s annual conference and support in publicizing their programs.

Visit the Enterprise Foundation Web site for complete program guidelines and application procedures.
