Enterprise is pleased to announce $492,000 in grants to eleven New York State affordable housing organizations through the HUD Section 4 Capacity Building program. Section 4 helps build the organizational capacity of nonprofits so that they can produce housing, preserve affordability, and improve outcomes for low-income communities. Over the last 20+ years, Enterprise has distributed more than $10 million to community development groups in New York through the program.
Some of this year's grantee projects include:
- Fortune Society will implement a series of trainings for the board, staff, and management team to assess their racial equity strategy. This is part of their strategic plan to create a race-forward organization in a sustainable and accountable way.
- Housing Visions will advance their Residential Eviction Prevention Program (REPP), to help residents access rent relief and other rent related costs. The program allows Housing Visions to assist residents in maintaining housing stability and prevent evictions by leveraging existing resources that are otherwise underutilized and/or unknown to residents.
- New Destiny Housing will develop a three-year strategic plan and assess opportunities for Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion training for the board, staff, leadership team. The strategic plan will guide the organization to successfully manage expected growth.
