Funding for housing solutions!

Funding for housing solutions

Hello Funds Fans!  Welcome to a new week and new opportunities to make a difference in your community.  Don’t forget to check out the October 2013 Deadline Alert for a long list of available funding this month.

Today, another new funder has been located.  The World Habitat Awards were established in 1985 by the Building and Social Housing Foundation as part of its contribution to the United Nations International Year of Shelter for the Homeless. Every year an award of £10,000 is presented to each of the winners for projects that provide practical and innovative solutions to current housing needs and problems.

Housing projects & approaches are sought that:

  • demonstrate practical, innovative and sustainable solutions to current housing issues faced by countries all around the world
  • can be transferred or adapted for use as appropriate; are already being implemented or are completed (ie not at design, planning or early stages of development)
  • view the term habitat from a broad perspective and bring other benefits as well, such as energy or water saving, income generation, social inclusion, community and individual empowerment, health benefits, capacity building or education.

Eligibility:

  • Any individual, organisation or government who has an innovative and practical solution to housing needs and problems from any country of the world.
  • More than one entry can be made by the same individual or organisation.
  • Entries should relate to housing projects and processes that are either completed or in progress. Those that are at design stage only or in the very early stages of development cannot be considered.
  • Previous entrants can re-submit in subsequent years providing that the project has been further developed in the intervening time period.

Application Deadline: November 1st, 2013.
