Strengthening Communities Fund (SCF)

Success Story

All federal funds are contingent upon annual budgetary Congressional approval. Please note that funds were not appropriated for the Compassion Capital and Strengthening Communities Fund Programs. Therefore, the Administration for Children and Families will not hold additional competition or award new grants for this program.

The Strengthening Communities Fund (SCF) worked with nonprofit community and faith-based organizations to address economic recovery issues in local communities.
