The William G. McGowan Charitable Fund has issued a request for proposals for projects that proactively address the problems faced by homeless individuals. The fund will award grants for initiatives that seek to correct, and ultimately eradicate, the circumstances contributing to the condition of homelessness. Programs must include education or job training, placement, and retention as well as provide evidence-based support services designed to remove barriers to self-sufficiency for individuals who are homeless. Other support services may include mental health and substance abuse support; life skills, parenting and/or personal budgeting training; and post-program participant follow-up.
Learn more and apply. Letters of interest must be received by July 15. Upon review, selected applicants will be invited to submit full applications by August 1.
