Capacity Building Grant

New Capacity-Building Grant Program for Housing Industry Nonprofits

Shore up your organization's longevity with THDA's Capacity-Building Grant.

THDA's Community Programs Division is pleased to launch a new Capacity-Building Grant Program for housing industry non-profit organizations this summer.

THDA will assist with guidance on the process.

What Type of Funds are Available?
