Grandfamilies/Kinship Support – Mar 7

Posted by William Penn Foundation on February 15, 2022

We are pleased to invite letters of inquiry for three-year projects to enhance organizations’ ability to serve grandfamilies/kinship care families in Philadelphia.

This Request for Inquiries stems from the 2020 Grandfamilies of Philadelphia study led by Generations United to provide educators, policymakers, funders, service providers, and other community members with a better understanding of the composition of grandfamilies in Philadelphia, the availability of services for them, and the degree to which they are aware of and able to access helpful services.

Our Great Learning program is interested in efforts to increase the ability of Philadelphia-based agencies to help grandfamilies support their children’s early learning and development. Research shows that when grandfamilies receive the support they need, children raised by grandparents or other relatives thrive despite the multiple challenges.

We ask for your help to share this funding opportunity among your networks. Click here for more information about the inquiry process and an online information session on February 22. Inquiry forms are due by March 7, 2022.
