What We Are Looking for

The Foundation seeks to prevent and reduce homelessness among adults by supporting direct services. This must include case management combined with addressing basic needs. Efforts must serve adults in the targeted zip codes 33023, 33069, 33309, 33311, 33313, 33319 and remove barriers for people to gain:

  • Steady employment (which can include access to higher education/career training that leads to a job).
  • Stable and affordable housing.
Application Information

To meet the needs of the community during the coronavirus crisis, the Community Foundation of Broward may change our usual grantmaking process to get resources where they are needed the most as quickly as possible. As a result:

  1. Grant application guidelines and deadlines may be changed. Check this webpage for future grant application opportunities.
  2. Grants may be renewed or awarded based on pressing community needs, without an RFP process.
  3. Grant applications to fill targeted gaps in community services may be offered by invitation only, via email invitations.
