Targeted Grants Support Local Work and Green Affordable HousingEnterprise is not an an endowed foundation and we do not have a regular grant cycle or standard proposal. We do offer a limited number of grants available only to nonprofits located in cities where we have active programs. Contact the Enterprise office nearest you for more information.
Enterprise Green Communities GrantsEnterprise Green Communities provides funding and technical assistance to organizations throughout the country working to transform the way we think about the location, design, construction and rehabilitation of affordable housing so that it provides significant health, economic and environmental benefits to residents and communities.
On a bi-annual basis, Enterprise Green Communities issues competitive funding rounds to request proposals from community housing development organizations (CHDOs) and community development corporations (CDCs) throughout the United States working to deliver and sustain green, healthy, affordable housing and neighborhoods.
