CNJG is pleased to offer this webinar hosted by our colleagues at the Council of Michigan Foundations.
The Administration for Children and Families (ACF) is currently working on an initiative to promote economic mobility. Through this work ACF hopes to support state and local efforts to move families to self-sufficiency by growing the capacity for parents and children to achieve their fullest potential through the workforce, education, early childhood development and family-centered integrated services. In this webinar we will discuss the initiative and highlight best practices of foundations who are supporting economic mobility work. We will also explore ways foundations may partner to engage in this space.
