HAC Announces New Rural Senior Housing Grant

On October 3, the Housing Assistance Council (HAC) announced a new, flexible small grant program aimed at helping address the needs of older adults living with low incomes in rural areas. Rural Senior Housing (RSH) Fund grants are available to nonprofits and must support housing-related activities benefiting people 62 and over with low incomes living in rural areas. Though eligible uses of RSH funds cover a wide variety of costs, from project costs to advocacy, the grant materials explicitly state preservation as a target of the fund. Grant awards can be distributed in a one- to three-year period with a maximum of $20,000 per year, up to $50,000 total. Applications are due December 15.
