United Way partners with Siemer Institute For Family Stability to expand case management services to families (call for letters of intent to apply)

United Way of the Mid-South is working with the Siemer Institute for Family Stability to
expand case management services that will stabilize housing for families of school-
aged children. The goal is to reduce student mobility increasing student opportunity for
academic success. Services are to be provided to families whose housing is at-risk and
not families who are currently homeless (on the streets or in a homeless program).

Funding available is up to $100,000 per year for 3 years. These funds must be used specifically for case management expenses. Grantees must show a 1:1 match. Match sources may be used to support direct financial assistance to participants or other programmatic costs.

Potential applicants must submit a Letter of Intent to Apply by 9/21/12 to United Way.
Letters must be a maximum of 2 pages and should contain the following elements:

• Identification and contact information, including e-mail of Grantee

• Identification of any partnering agencies

• Summary of Scope of Services to be proposed

• Funding requested

• Proposed date to begin services

Letters should be e-mailed to Diana Bedwell, diana.bedwell@uwmidouth.org by 5:00 pm
on 9/21/12. If other delivery methods are used, letters must be received by deadline.

Applicants will receive an e-mail with instructions for web-based application for Grant
