Housing Opportunities: 2019 Advocacy RFP details
Funds will be awarded in two tracks:
Campaign Leaders: grants intended for focused and targeted efforts with a clear policy or systems change goal led by a strong coalition of partners with a credible plan to succeed. Maximum of $75,000 available per year, for a total of $150,000 over two years.
Advocacy Mobilizers: for organizing efforts that may be more broad-based and less focused on one issue, or in an earlier stage of mobilizing support for more affordable housing opportunities. Maximum of $40,000 available per year, for total of $80,000 over two years.
Final award decisions are expected in May 2019, with first-year payments released in June 2019.

- Tuesday, Jan. 29, from 10:00-11:30 a.m.
- Tuesday, Feb. 5, from 3:00-4:30 p.m.
