Green Communities Initiative Announces Grant Guidelines

 Deadline: Rolling

 The Green Communities Initiative is a five-year,
 $550 million initiative to build more than 8,500 homes
 across the United States that provide significant health,
 economic, and environmental benefits to low-income fami-
 lies and communities. The effort is a partnership of the
 Enterprise Foundation and the Natural Resources Defense
 Council, in collaboration with the American Institute of
 Architects, the American Planning Association, and leading
 corporate, financial, and philanthropic organizations.

 The initiative will offer financing, grants, and technical
 assistance to developers to build affordable housing that
 promotes health, conserves energy and natural resources,
 and provides easy access to jobs, schools, and services.

 Grants will help cover the costs of planning and imple-
 menting green components of affordable housing projects,
 as well as tracking their costs and benefits.

 A minimum of $1 million in grant funds is available to
 participants. Individual grants are expected to range
 between $15,000 and $50,000.

 The grant competition is open to 501(c)(3) nonprofit,
 public housing authorities and tribally designated housing
 entities. For-profit entities may participate though joint
 ventures with qualified organizations.

 For more information, grant and application guidelines,
 and an FAQ, see the Enterprise Foundation Web site.
