When we talk about felonies and the issues with government grants, there are limited resources. If you have a felony conviction, and if you are looking for a way to find a place to live, your best resource will be through local community resource organizations and local churches. While these are not technically termed “grants“, many of these organizations will help you with housing when you are unable to find a place to live.
At one time, people with felony convictions were able to apply for grants and housing opportunities through HUD. Today, these opportunities are minimal and is limited to only certain people who meet specific requirements of the government.
If you have a felony conviction, and if you have resources or tips for our readers (in terms of housing) please feel free to share your comments her. We would love to share with our readers to be sure everyone has a fair chance to find good housing.

Housing Issues for Felons – In the News:
The MountainTimes is reporting that nearly $62,000 in grants have been awarded to various organizations in North Carolina. These grants are used to support organizations that help women and young girls in the mountain regions. If you have a felony conviction, and live in North Carolina, these grant programs may be something you can tap in to.
While the grants are used to help various situations that women and young girls face, most of the funding is being used to help those who are impoverished and those who are over the age of 60. But, if you have young girls living in the home, these young ladies may qualify for grant funding as well.
The funds are coming from the Appalachian Women’s Fund. If you’d like more information on the grants available to women through this fund, you can visit their website. They offer a variety of grant funding programs and scholarships to various programs across North Carolina.
For many female felons living in North Carolina, finding jobs and maintaining a household can be challenging. But with funding programs like these, with donations and grants given to local counties, programs are boosted and more women are served in their time of need. If you have a felony, do not be afraid to reach out to these organizations for assistance, especially if you have been unable to find a place to work and if you are struggling to find a place to live.
