CHFA’s Direct Effect Awards recognize Colorado nonprofit organizations whose missions align with CHFA’s work to strengthen Colorado by investing in affordable housing and community development. The Direct Effect Awards are an integral part of CHFA’s community investment and serve as a reminder that immediate funding of community-based needs can make a direct and positive impact.
CHFA is donating $440,500 to 34 nonprofits through its Direct Effect program in round one, which received more than 40 applications. The average grant award amount is $12,956 and the maximum grant award amount is $25,000.
“Nonprofits are on the front lines of tackling Coloradans’ housing and economic priorities. These local champions are uniquely qualified to engage, understand, and meet the varied needs in the communities they serve. CHFA’s Direct Effect Awards were created in the spirit of knowing that sometimes the most impactful work we can do as an organization is to further the capacity of those who are already building the path forward,” said Jerilynn Francis, CHFA community relations director.
