Partnership for Strong Communities in Hartford recently received a grant from Bank of America Foundation to support expanding access to housing opportunities in the state through the HOMEConnecticut Campaign.
HOMEConnecticut, staffed by the Partnership for Strong Communities, works to increase the state’s stock of affordable housing. HOMEConnecticut promotes the creation and preservation of affordable housing via outreach and engagement with municipalities, policymakers, and other partners and allies through research, analysis, and publication of housing data.
“This grant will support the work of HOMEConnecticut to support the expansion of affordable housing within the Bank’s market area.” said Kiley Gosselin, Executive Director of the Partnership for Strong Communities. “We appreciate the investment Bank of America Foundation has made in affordable housing and the long-term recovery and stability of our communities.“
Partnership for Strong Communities is a statewide nonprofit policy and advocacy organization dedicated to ending homelessness, expanding affordable housing, and building strong communities in Connecticut. Founded in 2004, has helped successfully advocate for over $2.3 billion in state funding for housing assistance and homelessness support programs. These housing resources have helped Connecticut reach a historic decline in the state’s homeless population, with a 40 percent reduction in shelter use since 2012.
Bank of America Foundation generously supports nonprofit organizations as they work to preserve, and increase access to a mix of affordable housing options and connect low- and moderate- income individuals and families with the tools and resources to achieve their financial goals.
