Challenge/Build/Grow Initiative Proposals Due by April 16
The National Housing Endowment, the philanthropic arm of NAHB, is seeking proposals from state and local home builders associations through its Challenge/Build/Grow matching funds initiative.
The endowment Board of Trustees has approved and will award HBAs $27,500 through the grant initiative this year.
Through the program, state and local associations are eligible for matching challenge grants up to $5,000.
Since the program was launched in 2001, more than $150,000 has been awarded to associations to support local initiatives on education, land use, labor shortage/worker training and more, and to help build new partnerships at the state and local level.
HBAs are encouraged to find opportunities for new partnerships in their communities to assist local programs targeting issues of importance to the industry — including job training, image building and educational and scholarship support.
HBA proposals must be received by Monday, April 16.
Proposals can be e-mailed to the edowment at email@example.com.
HBAs requesting grants are encouraged to seek advice on their proposals from endowment staff well in advance of the deadline.
