As part of our ongoing commitment to community development and the development and preservation of affordable housing in underserved communities, Enterprise is pleased to announce an open call for Section 4 Capacity Building grant funding.

The purpose of the Section 4 program is to develop the capacity and technical capabilities of Community Development Corporations (CDCs) and Community Housing Development Organizations (CHDOs) to carry out community development and affordable housing activities that benefit individuals and families with low-incomes (80% AMI or <).
Funding is made available through the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development’s (HUD) Section 4 grant program. The purpose of this grant funding is to support CDCs and CHDOs with resources to promote organizational stability and increased capacity to carry out community development and affordable housing programs and business operations.

Who Should Apply for this Grant Opportunity?

There will be two (2) funding opportunities in 2023.  We are now accepting applications from CDC and CHDOs working in urban communities. The deadline to apply is February 24, 2023.

An RFP for CDCs, CHDOs, Tribes, Tribally Designated Housing Entities (TDHEs), Tribal Housing Authorities (THAs), and Native CDFIs working in rural and tribal communities will be released on March 22, 2023.
