Members founded Fahe in 1980 to facilitate the flow of funding, subsidy, cap­ital, training, and network opportunities into Appala­chia. Today, the Network of 50+ nonprofits from six states serves 80,000 people a year.

Resources Fahe Provides

Advocacy - Fahe Members share a collective voice that shapes policy and pro­tects programs that build stronger communities. We work alongside national partners like NWA, HAC, and LISC to illustrate the story of our impact in Appalachia to policy makers and funders. Our Network represents our region’s needs, assets, and opportunities to influencers on both regional and national levels.

Communication - We amplify stories that illustrate our impact in Appalachia and maintain a strong virtual presence with audiences in the region and beyond. Trainings on social media, web development, and online marketing boost our voice to a targeted audience and influence the availability of funding, capital, and subsidy.

Collaboration - We foster impactful collaboration and partnerships among an ever-expanding cadre of key strategic partners who share our commitment to building stronger Appalachian communities.

Financing - Fahe provides access to lending capital and expertise so that our Members can focus on what they do best: serving their communities. As a conduit for financial resourc­es, we help families build assets to overcome poverty, help local leaders build stronger communities, and improve the overall economic potency of the region. Our out­standing financial performance unlocks the flow of funding capital---for instance, LIHTC and CDBG---to catalyze impact in underserved communities across Appalachia.

Innovation - We support local leaders by providing a safe testing ground for the development of innova­tive solutions that address barriers faced by low-income people and communities. Fahe’s methodical approach to building business platforms reduces the risk of inno­vation for vulnerable nonprofits, upon whom communities and residents rely.
