TD Charitable Foundation Announces 2013 "Housing For Everyone" Criteria; Applications Accepted Now Through August

CHERRY HILL, N.J., July 1, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- The TD Charitable Foundation, the charitable giving arm of TD Bank, America's Most Convenient Bank ®, today announced it will award $2.5 million in grants in 2013 to support neighborhood revitalization and stabilization projects and initiatives through its eighth annual "Housing for Everyone" grant competition.

The "Housing for Everyone" grant competition is the TD Charitable Foundation's signature program to bolster affordable housing efforts in communities served by TD Bank. The competition invites local non-profit organizations from Maine to Florida to submit proposals in which the organizations outline their plans to address the most acute affordable housing needs in their communities.

The theme of this year's competition is Neighborhood Revitalization and Stabilization, focusing on initiatives that will revitalize and stabilize neighborhoods that have been adversely impacted by economic conditions through the creation or re-creation of affordable, clean and safe housing units.

"Access to clean, safe and affordable housing affects thousands of working people who cannot afford a suitable place to live," said Elizabeth K. Warn, President of the TD Charitable Foundation. "The lingering effects of the recent recession, the foreclosure crisis and a continued lack of employment opportunities place an ongoing strain on neighborhoods. Community organizations have been working diligently to rebuild, and the goal of Housing for Everyone is to assist in the completion of these projects."

Twenty-five organizations throughout TD Bank's footprint from Maine to Florida will each be awarded a $100,000 grant for a total grant donation of $2.5 million.

Applications for funding must focus on:

Preservation/Rehabilitation/Expansion of viable existing affordable housing properties:  This may include the redesign, reconfiguration and or re-use of existing space in affordable housing properties to create increased quality and quantity of affordable housing units.  Upgrades to systems, structure and efficiency of properties to preserve and prolong their use will be considered.

Utilization of abandoned properties to create new units of affordable housing:  In urban, suburban and rural areas, the utilization of underused or abandoned properties to provide permanent or interim housing for low- and moderate- income individuals provides a tremendous opportunity to reverse neighborhood and community decline. 

Proposals will only be accepted online at www.TDBank.com (click on Our Community) and must be submitted by 4 p.m. on Friday, August 30, 2013. Winners will be notified in mid- November 2013.

For the past seven years, the TD Charitable Foundation has invested nearly $12.2 million in the "Housing for Everyone" competition to help create or maintain nearly 10,000 affordable housing units.
