The mission of the Coalition is “to advocate, educate, and promote awareness of issues and obstacles facing homeless individuals in Lee County through community collaboration, planning, and implementing solutions.” The Lee County Homeless Coalition is a non-profit advocacy group made up of community and faith-based service providers, local businesses, people who are currently experiencing or who have experienced homelessness, and other advocates committed to ending homelessness.

This grant opportunity is available only to members of the Lee County Homeless Coalition. The Coalition works with individuals and agencies to identify potential gaps within our local continuum of homeless care. We recognize that our provider agencies are being stretched to capacity and working harder than ever to deliver effective services often with diminishing funding. The purpose of this grant is to assist member agencies fulfill their mission and serve those who are homeless.

Preference will be given to agencies submitting requests to fund diversion strategies to prevent entry to shelter by helping individuals and families identify immediate alternate housing arrangements and, if necessary, connecting them with services and financial assistance to help them return to permanent housing.

The Lee County Homeless Coalition plans to make available a total of $20,000 to member agencies with a maximum award amount of $5,000 per application/entity. There will be four levels of sponsorships:

  • $1500
  • $2500
