We received this invite from Ascend at the Aspen Institute and excited to share the resources with the GLR Network.
New Federal Opportunities to Advance Two-Generation Approaches to Improving the Lives of Children and Parents
Ascend is proud to release New Federal Opportunities to Advance Two-Generation Approaches to Improving the Lives of Children and Parents and elevate funding opportunities in the 2018 federal budget.
Because of recent legislation and budget appropriations passed earlier this year, the federal government will be providing significant new funding to state and local governments beginning in 2018 through an array of programs serving children and parents with low incomes. These new funding streams, combined with an increased focus on improving outcomes using evidence-based approaches, create a remarkable opportunity for state and local leaders to add, enhance, or expand 2Gen approaches and transform how government tackles intergenerational poverty.
Join us for a webinar on
Thursday, July 12, 2018
3:00 pm - 4:00 pm ET
Hear additional insights from 2Gen and federal policy experts on how to pursue new funding streams available for organizations focused on improving outcomes for children and families.
The report and webinar will explore:
- The most significant new funding streams available to support ground-breaking 2Gen approaches, which will provide over $4.6 billion in additional 2018 funding and could provide much more in future years;
- How leading states and counties are already preparing to tap these new funds to test or scale up evidence-based 2Gen strategies with community partners; and
- Concrete steps that all jurisdictions can take to leverage these new federal resources to improve outcomes for children and families while improving government efficiency.

This report builds off of the recent release of States Leading the Way: Practical Solutions that Lift Up Children and Families, and is part of Ascend's Solutions Series: a collection of briefs, webinars, and convenings that elevate the top opportunities and actionable solutions to move children and their parents toward educational success and economic security as recommended by Ascend and other experts in the field.
