Strengthening Settlements Initiative for Smaller Agencies


UNH member agencies vary greatly in budget size from under $1M to over $70M. To address the unique needs of agencies with distinctly smaller budgets, UNH developed the Strengthening Settlements Initiative to offer technical assistance and small grants to support individual technical assistance to address critical management, finance and leadership issues and resources to help agencies carry out recommended improvements. This initiative also offers peer support for smaller settlement houses to address issues particular to smaller organizations.
