Funding Opportunity: Family Connection Grants: Child Welfare/TANF Collaboration in Kinship Navigation Programs

Posted by Maisha Meminger - On May 22, 2012 (EST)

The purpose of this Funding Opportunity Announcement is to solicit applications for projects that will develop and implement Kinship Navigator programs to: 1. Assist kinship caregivers, through information and referral systems and other means, to learn about, find, and use existing programs and services to meet their own needs and the needs of the children they are raising; and 2. Promote effective partnerships between public and private, community and faith-based agencies to better serve the needs of kinship caregiver families.

Grant projects funded under this announcement will be implemented through strong collaboration between the grantee; the public Child Welfare agency (if the primary applicant is not the public Child Welfare agency); and the agency administering the Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (TANF) program. These Kinship Navigator programs will be designed to promote protective factors as a means to support social and emotional well-being and healthy, positive functioning in kinship caregiver families served or potentially served by the Child Welfare and TANF systems.
