Partner agencies will receive a Homeless No More Challenge Grant from HUMI over the next two years ($10,000 per year) to launch a program aimed at eviction prevention and rehousing for families with children.
The grant is not a hand-out: agencies must raise an initial $10,000 before HUMI awards the $10,000 grant. Further, the partner agency is then expected to engage the community and match the funds with another $20,000 each year.
This double challenge match is designed to reinforce a self-supporting habit of contributions from the community towards a sustainable program. HUMI will assist to set up the program and establish a community Working Group that will monitor and coordinate the fundraising efforts moving forward.
