Funding Kinship Programs and Services: Tips & Resources

Please join Grandfamilies & Kinship Support Network for this opportunity to explore sources and tips for diversifying your funding for kinship services and programs, including through an array of federal programs often not accessed or thought of for kin. For example – you’ll hear how U.S. Department of Justice, Victim of Crime Act funds are used to provide kin with legal assistance and kinship navigator services. We’ll also discuss state and local government funding, along with private sources, including foundations and corporations.

Then, to help you pitch your idea or create your formal proposal, we will share a Network-created funding toolkit that provides templates and other resources. Leave empowered with ideas and tools to fund your services and supports for kinship/grandfamilies.
