"TD Charitable Foundation Invites Applications for 2013 'Housing for Everyone' Grants

"The TD Charitable Foundation, the charitable giving arm of TD Bank N.A., is accepting applications from nonprofit organizations to its eighth annual "Housing for Everyone" competition.

"The theme of this year's competition is neighborhood revitalization and stabilization, with a focus on initiatives designed to revitalize and stabilize neighborhoods that have been adversely affected by recent economic conditions through the creation or re-creation of affordable, clean, and safe housing units.

"Applications must focus on the preservation/rehabilitation/expansion of existing affordable housing properties and/or the utilization of abandoned properties to create new units of affordable housing.

"Twenty-five organizations in communities served by TD Bank will each be awarded a $100,000 grant in 2013.

"To be eligible, organizations must be tax-exempt under Section 501(c)(3) of the IRS Code (and not be classified as a private foundation) and be located in a TD Bank market area. In addition, applicants must have a mission/focus that promotes affordable housing for low- to moderate-income individuals.

"See the TD Bank Web site for eligibility and application guidelines."
