TD Charitable Foundation, the charitable giving arm of Cherry Hill-based TD Bank, awarded $5.8 million through the 16th annual Housing for Everyone grant program. A total of 33 nonprofit organizations received grants ranging from $150,000 to $250,000, TD announced March 8.
Five recipients from the Garden State were chosen, receiving a total of $875,000.
The program aims to help housing organizations deliver resident services such as eviction prevention assistance, workforce development and child care.
“Housing organizations have been on the front lines of both the affordability crisis and the COVID-19 pandemic. They have been called upon time and time again over the past few years to do everything from helping people find affordable homes to serving as vaccine clinics. Each time, they’ve stepped up and expanded their mandates to meet the needs of some of the most vulnerable members of our communities and work towards an equitable COVID-19 recovery,” Paige Carlson-Heim, director of the TD Charitable Foundation, said in a statement.
