ACF hosted the Learning Exchange, a virtual convening, in August 2021 to help you make the most of American Rescue Plan Act (ARP) funding according to the specific needs of your communities. In this convening, you will hear from peers in other localities about promising strategies and approaches implemented to fully harness available resources. The Learning Exchange will include roundtable sessions where participants will meet in smaller, mixed-region groups with colleagues from across the country to brainstorm, problem-solve, and discuss ideas for how to use both supplemental funds and regular appropriations strategically to help their communities and reduce systemic inequities.
As one of the largest stimulus packages in U.S. history, ARP provides ACF with resources to better serve the children, families, and communities at the center of our mission and build a strong foundation for the next generation. This table provides an overview of the funding deadlines, including grant release dates for ACF programs.
