Grant Opportunities
Health & Economic Supports for Trust-Funded Program Families
Does your Trust-funded program serve low-income families who can benefit from help to access benefits they might qualify for but don't currently receive (such as WIC, SNAP, TANF, KidCare, cash assistance, subsidized child care, housing and more)? Maximizing such supports for low-income families ultimately contributes to the broader local economy and child well-being and success. In addition to reducing children’s poverty and hunger, receiving public nutrition benefits in childhood is associated with benefits to health, school achievement, high school graduation and adult economic success. The Trust is releasing $600,000 in funding for family benefits enrollment supports to at least 6,000 families, and we strongly encourage our funded programs to offer this valuable service to families. You are eligible to apply if your agency serves at least 100 low-income families who might be eligible for benefits they are not tapping into. Even if you don't apply directly, you can partner with other community agencies that offer these value-add supports for your families. Expected RFP release date is July 24; visit de Grants section of our website to learn about the application process, and the Grant Opportunities page on that date to review the RFP in its entirety. Application deadline is September 6.
Request for Proposals: Trauma-Informed Care Training
The United Way of Miami-Dade announces a Request for Proposals (RFP) to identify a trainer (or trainers) who will develop and facilitate a trauma-informed care training for up to 100 nonprofit professionals. The goal of the training will be to increase the capacity of direct service agencies to improve the services provided to clients who have experienced trauma, as well as provide methods to cope with secondary traumatic stress.
