The HHS Admin. for Children and Families (HHS) plans to soon release a $54 million healthy marriage solicitation — the Healthy Marriage and Relationship Education Grants (CFDA Number: 93.086) (Funding Opportunity Number: HHS-2015-ACF-OFA-FM-0985).
ACF’s Rosalind Ginyard says the solicitation is currently expected in April, with a June deadline. Schools, state and local governments, public and private colleges and universities, public housing authorizes, nonprofits and for-profits, including small businesses, can apply for the upcoming funding. ACF plans to make 53 awards ranging from $350,000 to $2 million each.
These funds will support programs that have the capacity and proven track record of providing a broad range of marriage and relationship education and skills training to low-income populations.
To address the multiple barriers faced by individuals, couples, partners and families, projects will provide MRE skills and job and career advancement activities designed to change behaviors of individuals and move families towards economic self-sufficiency.
