VIHFA Seeks Input from Non-Profit Organizations (NPO) to Identify Unmet Needs

July 16, 2019

The Virgin Islands Housing Finance Authority (VIHFA) would like to take this opportunity to commend all non-profits in the Territory that were in the front lines of providing services, care, food, shelter and rescue immediately after the hurricanes Irma and Maria in 2017. The Authority understands that non-profit organizations provide critical services for vulnerable populations and it is dedicated to making funds available to assist NPOs that are serving the needs of those impacted by the storms

The Authority recognizes that there are still areas of need in the Territory related to Hurricanes Irma and Maria and is seeking input from the non-profit community about services or programs which may be prospects for Community Development Block Grant-Disaster Recovery funds.

In order to assist the agency with identifying unmet needs in the Territory, a brief Involvement survey has been created to compile information regarding the capacity of the NPOs and the areas they can assist VIHFA in the recovery efforts. You may access the survey at the VIHFA’s website, www.vihfa.gov. Kindly complete and submit online by July 31, 2019. Based upon the responses submitted from the survey, a formal application will be developed for NPOs.

If you have any questions regarding the Involvement Survey for Non-profit Organizations, you may contact the CDBG-DRHousing Program Managers: Nathalie Humphreys on St. Croix at (340)772-4432 or Erainee Acosta and Sherry-Ann Francis on St. Thomas at (340)777-4432.
