Flex Fund

Background:

ISHI Flex Fund resources must be used for short-term emergency funding to assist individuals and families to maintain or attain safe and healthy housing.

The goals of the ISHI Flex Funds are to:

  • Reduce barriers to accessing emergency funds

  • Fill gaps not addressed by existing funding sources

  • Make funds available in an expedited manner

  • Identify policy or systems change opportunities

Total Grant Funds: $1,533,400

Award Amount: Up to $166,200 per year for a one-year grant period (July 2019 - June 2020)

Application Deadline: Wednesday, June 12, 2019 by 3 PM
