$1.9 million initiative targets homelessness in Pennsylvania

HARRISBURG, Pa., Nov. 15, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — FHLBank Pittsburgh (FHLBank) and the Pennsylvania Housing Finance Agency (PHFA) announced today the 2022 Home4Good funding awarded to programs across the commonwealth working to reduce homelessness. This year, the combined total contribution is $1.9 million, with $900,000 from FHLBank and $1 million from PHFA.

“FHLBank Pittsburgh is proud to partner with PHFA and our members to provide nearly $1 million to 30 programs seeking to end homelessness in Pennsylvania,” said President and Chief Executive Officer Winthrop Watson.

Home4Good was created by FHLBank and is administered by PHFA. The funding announced today will be distributed as grants to organizations that help individuals retain or find housing, provide supportive services to those facing homelessness or address other unmet needs within the existing homeless provider network.

Distribution of the funding in most counties will be overseen by local Continuum of Care organizations. The list of funding recipients is available on the PHFA website.

“Now more than ever, funding is critically needed to support services that help people avoid and recover from homelessness,” said PHFA Executive Director and CEO Robin Wiessmann. “We’re pleased to provide this funding, along with FHLBank Pittsburgh, to move more families and individuals toward stabile housing and, hopefully, better days ahead.”

Information about Home4Good is available at www.fhlb-pgh.com and www.phfa.org at the bottom of the homepage under “Resources.” Organizations interested in future participation in the program can contact Alexa Mascara at [email protected] or Bryce Maretzki at [email protected] for details.
