Join July 10 Webinar
As Monarch Housing reported last month, the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services’ Administration on Children, Youth & Families (ACYF) released a public Funding Opportunity Announcement for a $35 million public-private partnership to support the spread of supportive housing models to stabilize the highest risk families.
Join the Corporation for Supportive Housing (CSH) for a webinar on Tuesday, July 10, 2012 from 3:00 to 4:30 p.m. learn more about this new initiative. The webinar will:
- Provide an overview of the initiative;
- Describe Keeping Families Together, one example of supportive housing for child-welfare involved families;
- Offer a profile of families the initiative is designed to serve; and
- Answer prospective applicants’ questions.
Nancy Barrand, Senior Advisor for Program Development at the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation will moderate the discussion featuring the following panelists:
- Bryan Samuels, Commissioner, ACYF
- Jan Flory, Annie E. Casey Foundation
- Alison Harte, Senior Program Officer, CSH
As background, ACYF and four national foundations announced a $35 million public-private partnership designed to demonstrate the effectiveness and potential cost-savings of projects that link supportive housing and social services to strengthen fragile families and keep children out of the foster care system. Applications must be submitted by Monday, July 30, 2012.
Collaborating foundations include Robert Wood Johnson Foundation (RWJF), Annie E. Casey Foundation, Casey Family Programs, and Edna McConnell Clark Foundation. The initiative builds on CSH’s successful pilot effort in New York City known as Keeping Families Together, which was funded by RWJF.
