SAN FRANCISCO, Calif. – (June 6, 2024)

Habitat for Humanity Greater San Francisco (Habitat Greater San Francisco) is pleased to announce we have been honored by the Palo Alto Community Fund (PACF) with two grants, including the prestigious Impact Grant, for our work to deliver transformative solutions to critical issues in the local community. The generous grants total $110,000 and will help us build and preserve more affordable homeownership opportunities for low-income families in San Mateo County.

The PACF Impact Grant is specifically designed to help local nonprofits serving the communities of Palo Alto, East Palo Alto and Menlo Park significantly move the needle towards addressing long-term systemic issues like housing security. As Lisa Van Dusen, PACF’s Executive Director, explains: “This year, our three Impact Grantees stand out for their commitment to collaboration and putting those they serve at the center of their work. Habitat for Humanity Greater San Francisco’s work in East Palo Alto and Menlo Park is absolutely critical and their commitment to partnering with other nonprofits in our community is providing innovative and meaningful solutions. The more we collaborate, the more we can invest in the future, respond to the moment, and close the gaps together.”
