Human Services Program is now accepting grant applications
The Kresge Foundation is accepting applications in its Human Services Program.
Following a nearly year-long assessment, the Human Services team has developed a strategic framework that seeks to expand access and opportunities for vulnerable, disadvantaged and low-income individuals and families by strengthening nonprofit organizations.
Its investments are concentrated in two focus areas:
- Advancing the effectiveness and resilience of direct-service organizations, where program team seeks to enhance the ability of high-performing, multiservice organizations to innovate and excel in their service-delivery and systems-change work.
- Leveraging the effectiveness of networks, where the team supports membership organizations and similar networks in efforts to provide technical assistance and build the capacity of direct-service providers.
Within both focus areas, the Human Services Program will also support applied research concerned with organizational effectiveness in the human services sector.
