Staff Reports | Digital Free Press
The Arizona Housing Fund — created in 2019 to address Arizona’s growing homelessness epidemic by raising money to build and operate more permanent supportive, low-income, and working poor housing — has named its first partner of the year.
To date, the fund, which is housed at the Arizona Community Foundation, has raised over $1.3 million and awarded $850K in grants to four Arizona nonprofits for four unique projects that will provide more permanent, supportive and affordable housing for hundreds of Arizonans in need, according to a press release.
The Arizona Housing Fund named North & Co. the first Arizona Housing Fund Partner of the Year at the residential real estate company’s team meeting, the release states.
“The Arizona Housing Fund is only as strong as its partners,” says Bank of America executive and founder of the Arizona Housing Fund Howard Epstein. “North & Co. stepped up when we were just getting started. They are truly making a positive impact on the community.”
Established Arizona nonprofits may apply for grants for permanent, supportive housing projects throughout the state of Arizona at any time throughout the year. Grant applications are available HERE.
