Financing for Sustainability
Financing for Sustainability expands upon CSSP’s experience helping communities develop the ability to secure the resources needed to achieve, sustain and scale-up their work. CSSP helps communities and local leaders understand, assess and secure public and private resources needed to achieve better long-term results for vulnerable children and families.
Through Financing for Sustainability, CSSP helps build local capacity to:
- analyze individual funding opportunities that support place-based community change efforts
- assess costs and benefits of pursuing different funding opportunities
- use state-of-the-art technical assistance to secure new resources to support their work
This work helps communities’ access and influence important place-based federal funding opportunities. Through the Investing in Community Change blog, real-time tracking and analysis is also provided.
