Grants


For the grant period July 1, 2022 – June 30, 2024, HAFI invested in six nonprofit organizations and one pooled fund, all located in Philadelphia. These grants support engagement with individuals and families who are experiencing homelessness as they work to access and sustain permanent housing.
