Faith-Based and Community Organizations Collaboration Institutes

The Faith-Based and Community Organizations Collaboration Institutes were designed to increase collaboration of Temporary Assistance to Needy Families (TANF) agencies by leveraging existing community resources to help low-income participants attain economic self-sufficiency. Five institutes across the country brought together regional and State TANF leaders, as well as their local FBCO partners, with a goal of enhancing outcomes for TANF-eligible individuals and families. The Institutes create an incubated learning environment to apply the collaboration concepts learned in the early phases of the project in an effort to strengthen existing and newly formed partnerships. This report summarizes each event along with the evaluations and feedback received from a series of post-event follow-up calls.
