Having a roof over your head is a basic human need. Unfortunately, there are over 600,000 people experiencing homelessness on any given night in the United States. Furthermore, many people live in substandard housing, and there is a lack of affordable housing across the country. Individuals, municipalities, and non-profit organizations have many opportunities for home construction grants and grants for other housing issues. Both federal and state governments as well as private foundations offer funding to help with a wide array of needs.
