$5 Million Available in New Grants to Serve Families Facing the Removal of a Child due to Housing Instability
April 12, 2012
The purpose of this funding opportunity announcement (FOA) is to serve a subset of families for whom the lack of adequate housing is a primary factor in the imminent placement of the child, or children, in out-of-home care, or in the delay of discharge of a child, or children to the family from out-of-home care. Community-linked services, as specified in CAPTA, will be provided to families through the local implementation of supportive housing services. Expected outcomes are a reduction in child welfare system contacts, reduction in child maltreatment, child removals, and foster care placements.
These grants will be administered by the Department of Health and Human Services' Administration for Children and Families.
Expected Application Deadline: July 28
