Spring 2018 Human & Social Services Grants

At their spring 2018 meeting, the RMSFF board of trustees awarded over $4.6 million human and social services grants to be paid in 2018 and succeeding years. These grants are focused on supporting organizations providing family services programming, hunger abatement and temporary housing or shelter, job training and emergency services assistance -- all aimed at helping individuals and families move toward self-sufficiency.
