Grant to a Massachusetts nonprofit community-based organization to reduce disparities and increase housing security in eligible locations. Funding is intended for programs and activities that address housing inequities issues faced by the residents of the communities in NWH’s primary service area: Natick, Needham, Newton, Waltham, Wellesley, and Weston. The target populations are individuals and families facing issues of housing insecurity with a focus on communities of color and immigrant communities.
Applicants are expected to propose a multi-faceted approach to addressing housing insecurity, with the following required components:
The proposed Community-Based Health Initiative (CHI) will provide downstream interventions to individuals and families in crisis while simultaneously ensuring a portion of CHI funds are dedicated to addressing upstream causes of housing insecurity rooted in systemic and structural racism. This CHI is intended to build on increased awareness of inequities highlighted by the disproportionate impact of COVID-19 and leverage this attention to support policy-level change affecting housing insecurity. As such, successful initiatives must include a policy or system change component that is rooted in the applicant’s understanding of needs through community engagement.
