Federal funding being retracted or suspended

Over the last few weeks a review of grant search engine results has shown a disturbing tend.  The term “temporarily suspended” has been associated with an increasing number of grant announcements.  L-&amp;-D_logo.30

We have been preparing our clients for this eventuality for about a year now but the cold realization of the actual “temporarily suspended” notation on notice of funding availability (NOFA) is startling.

This might otherwise by of limited concern if not for a recent letter from a federal agency that stated that a program, for which a client submitted a response to an RFP, was no longer available for loss of funding.  In a detailed announcement, the agency stated (paraphrasing) that as stated on page 20, the agency was depending on available funds to to conduct the program and in their absence was cancelling the announcement.  They hoped we would apply for future NOFAs.

Nonprofits, community service organizations, non-governmental organizations and others are now faced with limited availability of funds and limited opportunities as federal agencies close programs for lack of funds.

L&D Associates does not have all of the answers but our experience and commitment to our current and future clients is of value in these difficult and challenging grantmaking times.  Our Associates are prepared to assist our clients in identifying, pursuing and applying for relevant grant opportunities and announcements.

We believe we are well-positioned to assist you with your grantmaking needs.

Integrated Neighborhoods are Good for Your Health

. There are many benefits from living in more diverse and integrated neighborhoods, and a recently published study funded by the National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute (NHLBI) provides additional evidence that moving to more integrated neighborhoods has health benefits. Kershaw and colleagues examined 25 years of longitudinal data of 2280 Black participants in the Coronary Artery Risk Development in Young Adults (CARDIA) project to determine the effect of racial residential segregation on blood pressure.  Controlling for potential confounds including age, sex, marital status, education, and neighborhood poverty and density, participants exposed to less segregated neighborhoods experienced over a 1 mm Hg reduction in systolic blood pressure.  Among those who made more permanent moves to lower segregated neighborhoods (i.e., did not move back to highly segregated neighborhoods), their blood pressure dropped by 5.71 mm Hg on average.
