Housing Assistance and Supportive Services in Memphis. HHS FUNDING STREAMS TO MEMPHIS

01/05/2013

Respondents throughout our January 2012 site visit had very little knowledge of the funding streams of other organizations and initiatives charged with similar goals. Beyond funding, it was also unclear to respondents what many other organizations and initiatives actually did at the local level. Respondents concluded that a basic understanding of where and how funding streams were purposed at the local level would be a beneficial start to addressing silo problems.

 

In an effort to summarize these federal funding streams that support services in Memphis, the research team reviewed available data from Tracking Accountability in Government Grants System (TAGGS) and USAspending.gov. The majority of funding in TAGGS appears to be concentrated in the Administration for Children and Families (ACF) ($32,996,412) and the Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA) ($15,733,710) (Table 8).
