Assets for Independence Grant Deadlines
March 25 and May 24, 2013 (Nationwide)
The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services Office of Community Services administers the Assets for Independence (AFI) program, which provides five-year grants to nonprofit organizations and government agencies that empower low-income families to become economically self-sufficient for the long term. Grantees provide financial education training on money management issues and assist participants with saving earned income in individual development accounts (IDAs). Eligible applicants include nonprofit organizations, qualified state and local governments, low-income designated credit unions, community development financial institutions (CDFIs), and other community organizations. Applications for AFI grants of up to $1 million are being accepted.
