Kresge Foundation: Boosting Opportunities for Social and Economic Mobility for Families

The Kresge Foundation is launching a new funding opportunity, Boosting Opportunities for Social and Economic Mobility for Families, to strengthen partnerships between community colleges and human services organizations that connect people with low incomes in cities to critical human service supports and educational pathways that advance social and economic mobility.

The program aims to strengthen existing partnerships between community colleges and human services nonprofits that help current and future students secure family-sustaining employment using two-generation approaches. The focus is on solutions that bring together community colleges’ educational pathways, human services nonprofits’ supportive services, and workforce development’s career pathways. The application packet and FAQs may be downloaded from the Foundation’s website.

Eligibility: Partnerships must include at least one community college and at least one nonprofit human services organization.

Award: The Foundation will award up to eight grants of up to $450,000 each.

Deadline: The application deadline is July 26, 2019.
