A private Boston-based funders’ collaborative hopes to find innovative solutions to the state’s affordable housing crisis for extremely low-income families by hosting a competition to solicit new strategies.

Home Funders will launch its competition at the State House on Thursday, offering three awards of $10,000 to $25,000 for creative, feasible and sustainable ideas.

“We’re trying to encourage a range of stakeholders to propose strategies that we may not have thought about yet or that would be appropriate for today’s environment,” executive director Soni Gupta said. “Our hope and our goal is that the winning entries would be ideas that we could help implement over the course of time and that actually would be … effective and there’d be interest in.”
