Family prosperity isn’t what it could be in America – and we are looking for partners ready to change that in meaningful and groundbreaking ways.
The Aspen Family Prosperity Innovation Community (Family Prosperity) is a learning and action community committed to finding the most effective and innovative solutions to problems that affect working families with low incomes. The second phase of Family Prosperity will introduce a new cohort of innovators.
Organizations are invited to submit a full proposal (RFP) in this second round of partner selection to be a part of the Aspen Family Prosperity Innovation Community.
Ascend will select a cohort of up to 20 leading organizations with strong policy expertise and/or on-the-ground service delivery expertise; passionate about innovation; achieving greater impact; and working collaboratively with a focus on families 200 percent or below the poverty line and an emphasis on solutions that move those families into living-wage, quality jobs. Organizations will be selected in June 2020 for a two-year grant from July 15, 2020 to June 15, 2022.
