FHLBank Pittsburgh and the West Virginia Housing Development Fund are proud to announce the 2018 Home4Good funding awards. This money will be utilized by groups across the Mountain State working to reduce homelessness. This year, FHLBank Pittsburgh provided $1.1 million toward the effort and the Fund provided $250,000, for a total contribution of $1.35 million.
“FHLBank Pittsburgh is privileged to partner with the West Virginia Housing Development Fund and our member institutions to provide these much-needed funds to programs working to end homelessness in West Virginia,” said Winthrop Watson, FHLBank Pittsburgh’s President and Chief Executive Officer.
Home4Good was created by FHLBank Pittsburgh and the moneys dedicated to West Virginia are administered by the Fund. The funds are awarded to organizations that help individuals retain or find housing, provide supportive services to those facing homelessness or address other unmet needs within the existing homeless provider network.
Distribution of the funding in most counties is being overseen by local Continuum of Care organizations.
“The Fund is proud to be a part of this effort to reduce homelessness in our state,” said Erica Boggess, the Fund’s Executive Director. “There is no single program that alone can end homelessness. That’s why Home4Good is funding a variety of different programs that together should make real progress getting people off the streets and into housing.”
