Grants & Funding

ACF offers funding for a variety of competitive and mandatory grant programs serving families, children, individuals and communities.

We award billions of dollars in competitive, discretionary grants designed to promote the economic and social well-being of families, children, individuals, and communities. Though we do not provide personal financial assistance, we have a variety of funding opportunities available to support social service programs at the state, local and tribal levels.

Our grantees include both non-profit and for-profit organizations as well as government, educational, and public housing groups. ACF's wide breadth of programming funds an array of activities that support the economic and social well-being of people throughout the country.
