Challenge/Build/Grow Initiative Proposals Due March 26
The National Housing Endowment, the philanthropic arm of NAHB, is seeking proposals from state and local home builders associations for its Challenge/Build/Grow (CBG) matching funds initiative.
HBA proposals must be received by March 26.
Under the program, HBAs are encouraged to find opportunities to build new partnerships in their communities to assist local programs targeting issues of importance to the industry — including job training, image building, labor shortage, educational curriculum and scholarship support.
The endowment will award HBAs a total of $15,000 through the grant initiative, with each applicant eligible for a matching challenge grant of up to $5,000.
Online applications and guidelines are available on the endowment Web site by clicking here.
HBAs requesting grants are encouraged to seek advice on their proposals from the endowment staff well in advance of the deadline.
Since the program was launched in 2001, more than $200,000 has been awarded to state and local HBAs throughout the country.
