FHO In the News: Here Are Some of the Leading Funders Tackling the U.S. Affordable Housing Crisis

Inside Philanthropy cites Funders for Housing and Opportunity and many of our members as leading funders working to address the housing crisis.

"Launched in 2018, Funders for Housing and Opportunity (FHO) is a funder collaborative that works to improve housing options and life opportunities for all Americans. It does this by investing in three strategy areas: policy, advocacy and organizing; narrative change; and elevating what works. FHO prioritizes those who are “precariously housed,” meaning people experiencing homelessness and those that pay more than half of their income on rent.

FHO’s founders are the Annie E. Casey, Bill and Melinda Gates, Conrad N. Hilton, Ford, John D. and Catherine T. MacArthur, JPB, Kresge and Oak foundations, and the Melville Charitable Trust.

To date, FHO has awarded approximately $18 million. Some of its grantees include Keep Illinois Home, Housing Justice for All, Nevada Housing Justice Alliance, Speak Up!, and Housing Narrative Lab."
