This is a multifaceted resource that VHDA uses to support vital housing initiatives through our Homeownership, Rental, and Community Outreach programs.
The purpose of the VHDA Event Sponsorship is to assist in the fundraising and educational initiatives of charitable organizations within the housing network in order to assist them in furthering their mission.
Non-profit or government organizations located in the Commonwealth of Virginia are eligible to apply under the Event Sponsorship Program.
Organizations must have a housing-related mission and may include:
- Statewide Organizations- up to $30,000
- Multiple events: Up to $30,000
- Single event: up to $15,000

- Individual Housing Organizations
- Significant Milestones (5 year, 10 year, etc.) - up to $5,000
- All Others - up to $2,500
