About this funding opportunity
In 2017, the Trust began funding efforts under the Housing+ portfolio, a funding portfolio focused on strengthening the impact of permanent housing on outcomes in health, education and reduced justice recidivism. In order to better support and facilitate learning in this field, and build from lessons learned over the course of Housing+ funding, The Chicago Community Trust is funding specifically in Housing+Justice for its May 2019 grant cycle.
The Trust called for proposals that are piloting new approaches and documenting their outcomes and challenges. We are interested in supporting efforts that are primarily seeking to provide access to permanent supportive housing and, through partnerships and advocacy, to impact positive outcomes for justice-involved community members.
