Funding Guide

Funding Guide

A typical supportive housing residence receives funding from a patchwork of city, state, federal and private sources. Keeping tabs on these funding programs -- their guidelines, deadlines and fine print -- can be a cumbersome task. The Network's Funding Guide is a one-stop resource for anyone looking to find funds for supportive housing.

Our Funding Guide offers up-to-date information and analysis of supportive housing funding streams. Each profile includes how to apply, details on which populations are eligible and links for more information. Users can search through profiles using the tools on the left-hand side of the page. These filters allow you to search for entries by funding Type (capital, operating, etc.) and Source (New York City, federal, etc.), among other variables. Our profiles are updated regularly to maintain the most current information possible.

The status bar divides entries into four categories:

  • Available – These funding programs are currently accepting applications or have a rolling RFP. 
  • Open Soon – These funding programs are currently NOT accepting applications, but funding will resume once funding is available or a new RFP is issued. As soon as they do, we will update the status to ‘Available.’
  • Not Available – These funding programs still exist, but are no longer accepting applications and will not be issuing any more RFP’s for the foreseeable future. 
  • Archived – These programs are no longer active.
