Enterprise is a proven and powerful nonprofit that improves communities and people’s lives by making well-designed homes affordable. We bring together nationwide know-how, partners, policy leadership and investment to multiply the impact of local affordable housing development. We foster community improvement from the ground up: well-designed, affordable homes connected to resources like health care, schools, jobs and transportation. So that people have the opportunities to reach their full potential.

"This is my home, and I have no intentions of leaving." In our 2018 ANNUAL REPORT, meet more people like Ms. Grace who live in neighborhoods where Enterprise creates opportunity.

We work to strengthen community-based organizations advancing our shared mission. In most instances, we award grants through a formal Request for Proposal (RFP) process. We don’t gather grant application information by email or phone. Our grant process also does not involve providing sensitive personal information such as Social Security number, birth date or bank account information.

Below is a description of current grant opportunities available to community-based organizations.
