Connecticut Joins Zero:2016 Effort to End Chronic, Veteran Homelessness
The Connecticut Coalition to End Homelessness and the Partnership for Strong Communities are excited to announce that Connecticut has been selected, along with 68 other U.S. jurisdictions, to participate in Zero: 2016, a national technical assistance effort to end Veteran and chronic homelessness in the next two years. Connecticut will work to accelerate our housing efforts through four focus areas: closing the research-to-practice gap, real-time data and performance management, local systems redesign, and local team and leadership development. Community Solutions will provide hands-on coaching and data tools, and will establish a national peer-to-peer learning network to accelerate innovation across communities.
The Melville Trust is issuing a Request for Proposals for its Employment and Educational Opportunity Fund (EOF) program. The EOF provides modest, highly flexible support for the employment related expenses, educational and training aspirations of people who are homeless or exiting homelessness. Grants are made to Connecticut nonprofit providers on an annual basis, up to $7,500. Application deadline is December 5th, 2014; they anticipate awarding 10-12 EOF grants by the end of the year.
