The grants will help increase access to stable and affordable housing, address the racial wealth gap, prevent homelessness, and support organizations engaged in policy advocacy around the issue. Nine of the grants, totaling $250,000 were decided by a community-led panel of 7 UWBA Ambassadors with lived experience facing housing insecurity in the region.
