Mercy Foundation Grants to End Homelessness

The Mercy Foundation Grants to End Homelessness are available for seeding initiatives, services, projects, advocacy and research that will contribute to the goal of ending homelessness by supporting housing first and permanent supportive housing solutions. Projects that focus on chronic homelessness and women who experience chronic homelessness are currently priority areas for funding. These will generally be larger grants (up to $50,000 for any one year) with grants likely to be averaging $20,000 - $30,000.

Chronic homelessness is defined as an episode of homelessness lasting 6 months or longer or multiple episodes of homelessness over a 12 month period or more. People who experience chronic homelessness are likely to have 'complex needs', which usually means that they have one or more of the following:
  • developmental disability
  • traumatic brain injury
  • serious physical health problems
  • history of abuse or trauma
  • mental illness
  • mental disorder
  • psychiatric disability
  • addictions.
Applicants must be able to specify measurable outcomes from the initiative. Those outcomes will need to show that the project has contributed to ending chronic homelessness or contributed substantially to increasing knowledge about the pathways into and out of homelessness – thereby increasing our understanding of how to prevent and how to end homelessness. All applications will need to outline their evaluation strategy and make clear how such outcomes will be measured.

Applicants must be a legal entity, such as an incorporated association or company. If not, the applicant will need to be auspiced by an appropriate organisation. Unfortunately at this time, the Mercy Foundation is unable to fund services or projects which require recurrent or indefinite funding. However, depending on the project and its assessed contribution to meeting the objectives of these grants, the Mercy Foundation could choose to fund a project again the following year (subject to a further application). This can only happen in very special circumstances and should not be expected, but if a solid case is made then it might be considered.
