HHS, private foundations team up, announce $35 million plan to keep at-risk families together

Posted by Maisha Meminger - On June 14, 2012 (EST)

The Administration for Children and Families (ACF) is teaming up with four national foundations to combat family homelessness. Families comprise the fastest-growing segment of the homeless population, now accounting for more than one third of the overall group.
ACF will provide $1 million per year to each of five grantees for five years ($25 million total) to demonstrate the effectiveness and potential cost-savings of projects incorporating stable housing and comprehensive services that focus on safety, positive family functioning, and child well-being. The initial funding opportunities were announced this week and selected grant recipients will be announced in September. Funding for the following four years is dependent on the availability of funds and grantees meeting certain benchmarks.
