Enterprise’s Mountain, Tribal Nations, and Rural program is pleased to announce $1,420,000 in grants to 32 Rural and Native American affordable housing organizations through the HUD Section 4 Capacity Building Program.

Section 4 helps build the organizational capacity of nonprofits so that they can produce housing, preserve affordability and improve outcomes for low-income communities.  Since 1982, Enterprise has invested nearly $2 billion in grants, loans and equity and technical assistance to develop more than 39,000 affordable homes in rural communities nationwide.

Some of this year's grantee projects include:

  • Homestead Community Development Corporation in Anahola, Hawaii, will use funds to build staff and board capacity and assist the Anahola homestead community in beginning an economic mobility movement benefiting Anahola people, land and culture, following the tenets of the Hawaiian Home Land Trust.
  • Navajo Townsite Community Development Corporation in Navajo, New Mexico, will use funds to build staff and board capacity and organizational infrastructure to better serve the community of Navajo.
  • Woodlands Development Group in Elkins, West Virginia, will conduct solar assessments and create a master solar implementation plan to use with new development and rehabilitation projects. Woodlands will also conduct energy audits on its existing properties, with a special focus on those properties aging out of HUD affordability requirements and/or those most in need of rehabilitation, many of which are serving senior and the lowest-income populations.

Please join Enterprise in congratulating all of the grantees:
