Tam Pacific makes direct grants to other organizations that develop and provide affordable housing. Grants are based on an experienced applicant organization's assessment of the environmental, physical, communal, social needs and feasibility plans necessary to acquire and develop sites; the ability to construct and rehabilitate housing; and the ability to provide related social services for lower- and moderate-income families, elderly people, and people with disabilities. Applicants request and submit a Grant Application Form, which specifies the plans, resources, time-lines, regulatory approvals and other monetary commitments. Grant Applications are presented at quarterly meetings of the full Board of Trustees. Several grants are awarded each year.
