Development and Preservation Fund

Online applications for the Spring 2024 cycle of the Development and Preservation Fund are being accepted February 1st–March 1st, with funding decisions to be announced at the end of May.

Eligible request types include both short- and long-term loans for local affordable housing projects, in addition to specific programmatic, planning, and project-based grant opportunities for housing-supportive nonprofits.

Alongside funds made possible through our ARPA partnership with the City of Omaha, this round introduces additional philanthropic dollars beyond the private ARPA match. As such, loan applications for projects in the Greater Omaha Metro that fall outside of Omaha city limits will be eligible for consideration.

Please visit the Development and Preservation Fund section of our website for complete details before applying.
