CSH is seeking eligible and qualified governments, Tribes or eligible nonprofit organizations along with eligible lead applicant partners interested in receiving intensive technical assistance to plan and implement a One Roof Initiative using a KFT supportive housing model and approach.
CSH has been awarded a three-year grant from the Margaret A. Cargill Philanthropies to advance One Roof efforts, expanding access to housing opportunities for child welfare-involved families in the States of Minnesota and Washington by working with selected communities to foster multi-sector partnerships to better connect families with supportive housing – affordable housing tied to services – and embed it within the service array being offered to child welfare-involved families at risk of homelessness. The CSH objectives in this work are:
- Objective 1: Plan, launch and fully implement KFT supportive housing model and approach in select communities in the States of Minnesota and Washington.
- Two communities in Minnesota and one community in Washington will be selected. We are looking to fund communities that have not received previous intensive and site-specific TA focused on the implementation of the three phases of KFT outlined in Section V. Communities and regions that have participated in learning webinars or beginning conversations on implementing a KFT initiative with CSH are eligible for this funding.
- Objective 2: Support the sustainability of the selected KFT communities to ensure successful outcomes for families
- Objective 3: Set the stage for further scaling of the KFT supportive housing approach in other communities across Minnesota and Washington
These 3 communities will receive and participate in a 24-28 month package of technical assistance provided by CSH and each applicant can request up to $225,000 total in subgrant funding to support the applicant and project partners participation in, and implementation of the KFT initiative.
