Grant Announcement: Community-Based Approaches to Strengthening Economic Supports for Working Families

Adverse childhood experiences (ACEs) disproportionally affect low-income, racial, and ethnic minority families. In an effort to improve health outcomes for poor families, the Office of the Assistant Secretary for Health and the Office of Minority Health have released a grant opportunity that focuses on ACEs and whether earned income tax credit (EITC) education and outreach activities can result in increased EITC receipt and changes in risk for ACEs. Eligible organizations include state, county, and city governments; Native American tribal organizations; public and state-controlled institutions of higher education; public housing authorities; nonprofit organizations; and nonprofit institutions of higher education. Up to 6 grants are expected to be awarded. The application due date is August 17, 2020.
