Family Independence Initiative

Oakland, California



The organization’s innovative anti-poverty model empowers low-income families to take responsibility for improving their lives by awarding incentive grants based on positive changes they make on their own behalf. Assistance from this multiyear grant allows the organization to build its internal capacity, strengthen its model, and deepen its impact.
