TD Ready Challenge

The TD Ready Challenge supports organizations developing innovative solutions for our changing world. Every year, we focus on one or more drivers of the TD Ready Commitment.

How the TD Ready Challenge works

We ask applicants to present their unique approach to addressing a problem and serving their community. This year, we asked for solutions to address systemic barriers to affordable housing and increase access for those moving from transitional housing to permanent homes.
