REACH Virginia Program
Most grants are funded by our REACH Virginia program. Each year, we contribute a significant portion of our net revenues into this program to make these grants possible. This multifaceted resource is used to support vital housing initiatives through our Homeownership, Rental and Community Outreach programs.
This loan/grant provides below-market financing for typical predevelopment expenses to facilitate development of high-quality affordable rental housing.
Sponsoring Partnerships And Revitalizing Communities (SPARC)
Our SPARC program helps localities working toward revitalization, increasing homeownership opportunities, and serving rural communities by providing funds for affordable Virginia Housing mortgages. Help residents in your community obtain a lower interest rate mortgage by applying for SPARC funds.
Housing Counseling and Education Grants
These grants provide funding for HUD-approved housing counseling programs to educate families and individuals, so they can:
- Make smart decisions about their finances and housing options.
- Improve their housing situation.
- Meet the responsibilities of renting or owning a home.
Event Sponsorship Grants
Consider this grant if you are planning a housing fair, educational event or fundraising activity for a charitable housing nonprofit.
Capacity Building Grants
Our Capacity Building program supports the development and strengthening for your operations, processes and resources. Funding is provided to develop strategic plans, succession management plans, training and educational tools.
Community Impact Grants
Tackling a housing challenge often starts with activities that require funding. Our Community Impact Grant can help cover the costs of market research, design and engineering studies, community outreach, neighborhood community design, mixed-use/mixed-income development planning and other initiatives to provide housing and spur economic growth.
