Cash transfer programs give people experiencing housing instability both financial support and agency to meet their immediate needs. As more funders think about how to financially support cash transfer programs, we know there are a lot of questions about implementation, buy-in and support, and capacity.
The National Alliance for Safe Housing (NASH) has been convening a flexible funding peer network across the country and, in partnership with Caravan Studios, is working to create a platform and accompanying guidance to support others in advancing cash transfers. During this funder call on March 22, Funders Together will build on our January cash transfers webinar and provide an opportunity for philanthropy to dig deeper on the questions they raised during that webinar.
Our partners at NASH and Caravan Studios will first talk about cash transfer pilots to support housing stability for domestic violence and sexual assault survivors from our partners, and then we will moderate a conversation to hear what questions and challenges funders are encountering in supporting cash transfer programs and share challenges that providers are facing. This conversation is designed to both provide an opportunity for real time peer learning, as well as help inform the development of future resources.
- Hear what cash transfers and flexible funding support looks like for supporting the housing needs of domestic violence and sexual assault survivors
- Learn and share with other funders about common questions and challenges philanthropy faces when supporting cash transfer programs
- Help inform guiding resources on implementing cash transfer and flexible funding programs
