Grants Promote Social and Economic Mobility
The Kresge Foundation’s Human Services Program supports the advancement of human services to accelerate social and economic mobility for people with low income in America’s cities. One of the program’s focus areas, “Advancing innovative, multi-sectoral policy solutions in human services,” supports efforts to change the way the human services sector operates through testing, disseminating, and advocating for policy-driven approaches to improving social and economic mobility. The focus is on helping groundbreaking ideas enter the mainstream at the state and national level and encouraging collaboration across multiple sectors, including the public sector, private sector, and nonprofit sector. Nonprofit organizations and government entities are eligible to apply. Online applications may be submitted throughout the year. Visit the Foundation’s website for more information.
