Click here to learn about the Funders Together Networking Series, which helps grantmakers develop strategic relationships, exchange valuable information, and highlight their work with other funders across the United States and Canada.
The Connections Project is a three year, place-based, systems-level collaboration and capacity-building invitation to communities nationwide. The goal of the Connections Project is to increase employment and economic opportunity for homeless jobseekers. The project is made possible thanks to the support of the Oak Foundation and the Melville Charitable Trust.
The Connections Project Request for Proposals aims to identify, through a multi-phase competitive process, up to five Connections Project Sites that will plan, implement, and strengthen innovative systems collaboration ideas in order to meet the goal of increasing employment and economic opportunity for homeless jobseekers.
This webinar will provide an overview of the Connections Project RFP application for funders, outline ways other funders can get involved in this project, and answer any questions you may have.
This webinar is part of the Funders Together Learning Series.
This event is intended for funders. Before you invite non-funders to participate, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.

This 2-day event will focus on youth homelessness in America by highlighting what communities are doing and urging the federal government to respond with urgency to the needs of all homeless youth. National Network for Youth will facilitate a discussion among federal agencies about their youth homelessness work and elevate the challenges communities face when utilizing federal resources to care for homeless youth. As advocates and allies for these youth, your attendance will grant you the opportunity to not only network with colleagues from across the country, but also meet with lawmakers one-on-one to advocate for effective federal policies and youth-appropriate resources.
