Grants to Help the Homeless

While many people experience America as a “land of plenty,” with opportunities and creature comforts abounding, sadly nearly 554,000 people in our country do not have a home (U.S. News, 2017). Many different factors can lead to homelessness, including economic factors, mental health, and situational issues. Therefore, organizations that seek to combat homelessness must use a variety of techniques and offer diverse services to tackle this multifaceted problem. Whether your non-profit agency seeks funding for programs to support immediate basic needs for those who are homeless or to create long-term housing and solutions, a number of different grants are available to help finance this important work to assist some of our nation’s most vulnerable residents.

Bank of America Economic Mobility Grants

For 2018, Bank of America is offering two different economic mobility-focused grant programs to organizations that assist vulnerable populations, including the homeless:

The first grant program supports non-profit agencies that assist homeless individuals and families. This grant funds a variety of initiatives that directly help the homeless, such as programs that provide the basic needs of food, clothing, and shelter or job-training programs.  Applications for the Economic Mobility Grant are typically due in February of each year.

The second grant program focuses on broader community and social programs, including larger-scale programs whose trickle-down effect will ultimately help reduce homelessness rates. For instance, organizations that seek to build transitional or long-term housing specifically for vulnerable populations, including the homeless, are eligible for this grant opportunity. The application period for this second grant type is usually in the month of June each year.
