In partnership with the California Housing Finance Agency (CalHFA), Apple has provided mortgage and down payment assistance to thousands of first-time buyers with low and moderate incomes, with additional benefits for teachers, veterans, and firefighters. Apple has also partnered with CalHFA to launch an affordable housing investment program, the first of its kind in California, which has increased the availability of funding to develop and build very low- to moderate-income housing at a lower cost. And we’re supporting several new affordable housing projects funded through our partnership with Housing Trust Silicon Valley. Many of the new units are reserved for veterans, the homeless or formerly homeless, and residents with developmental disabilities. In 2022, residents moved into the new Veterans Square development in Pittsburg, California. The 30-unit building offers 100 percent free housing to local veterans, along with a community garden, courtyard, community room, on-site management, and other amenities and services. Apple’s affordable housing initiative also includes a partnership with Destination: Home, which has helped fund the construction of thousands of new units of affordable and supportive housing for the most vulnerable populations across Silicon Valley. With our support, Destination: Home has also been able to expand its Homelessness Prevention System to keep thousands of families from losing their homes each year. Learn more about this initiative. Corporate donations Whether it’s racial injustice, food insecurity, a natural disaster, or a health emergency, our community giving program is agile enough to allow us to respond in a timely, efficient, and effective way. We support nonprofit organizations in a variety of ways, including financial resources, Apple technology, and expertise from our teams. Accelerating social change We’ve designed our corporate donations to address immediate needs and to build community resilience. Several initiatives described on previous pages fall into this area of focus, including our REJI commitment to further racial equity and justice (see page 60 ) and addressing housing scarcity and homelessness in California (see page 64 ). In 2021, Apple marked its 15th anniversary of partnering with (RED) to fight HIV/AIDS in sub- Saharan Africa. Since 2006, Apple customers have helped raise nearly $270 million to fund prevention, testing, and counseling services for people impacted by HIV/AIDS, as well as programs to support this community during COVID-19. Apple-supported grants have enabled care and support services for over 11 million people, provided over 192 million HIV tests, and allowed over 13.8 million people access to lifesaving antiretroviral treatments. By redirecting donations to the Global Fund’s COVID-19 Response at the onset of the pandemic, Apple customers were able to help fund programs that mitigated the impact of COVID-19 on existing HIV/AIDS programs and rural clinics were able to purchase motorbikes that were used to transport samples to laboratories in order to expedite test results for immunocompromised people, such as those living with HIV. Strengthening local communities We believe we can have an impact on communities by supporting grassroots organizations that work directly with local stakeholders. We focus our donations on programs that are building strong communities and empowering creatives in the places where we live and work. In fiscal year 2021, we provided 79 small grants across seven Part of the Global Fund’s broader investment in health system strengthening in Zambia includes getting COVID and HIV tests and blood samples safely delivered to labs. Access to advanced testing equipment is limited so it’s critical to have efficient transport services in place so that samples can get consistently and swiftly delivered in time for processing.
