Day 1 Families Fund Opportunity

The Anchorage Coalition to End Homelessness received a grant from the Bezos Day 1 Families Fund, which issues annual leadership awards to organizations and civic groups doing compassionate, needle-moving work to provide shelter and hunger support to address the immediate needs of young families across the country.

One organization will be awarded a grant up to $350,000.

The Anchorage Coalition to End Homelessness is soliciting proposals from qualified organizations that are pursuing solutions to family homelessness in the Municipality of Anchorage, with a strong focus on helping families gain or remain stably housed by providing short-term subsidized rental assistance, and by assisting them with connecting to and navigating an array of supportive services to support them in achieving permanent housing. The project timeline is September 2022 through September 30, 2024. Learn More…
