Funders for Housing and Opportunity, a $10 million collaborative, will invest in programs with the goal of ensuring individuals and families who spend more than half of their income on rent – or have no homes at all – can afford safe, stable rental housing. It allows foundations to align strategies, leverage funds, and extend their reach beyond what each could individually support. Already, $4.9 million has been committed to four grantees over the next three years, including the Center for Community Change, National Housing Trust and Enterprise Community Partners, the National Low Income Housing Coalition, and the Partnership for Children and Youth. Collaborative members, which include MacArthur and eight other private foundations, agree that there is a strong connection between safe, affordable housing and better life outcomes.
