Build Brighter Futures

Changes to Career Transitions

Last Fall, we received notice that the Department of Public Health and Human Servies would release a Request For Proposal for the TANF Pathways and SNAP E&T Programs, intending to transition from 12 providers statewide to a single one. Unfortunately, we were unable to apply as our current organization structure couldn’t adequately support a statewide program. In February 2024, Maximus Federal Services was awarded the RFP, leading to Career Transitions losing critical grant funding that has sustained our operations for many years. READ MORE HERE.

Despite losing this funding, we will continue to support our community by shifting our focus to outside fundraising and other grant opportunities. Your assistance during this transition is invaluable as we work towards providing our clients with the necessary resources to BUILD BRIGHTER FUTURES. We believe that continued personalized support for individuals and families is a vital investment for our entire community. With hundreds of nonprofits in the Gallatin Valley vying for the same donor funds that support so many great causes, we face uncertainty about our own success. However, we remain optimistic, relying on the strength and generosity of our community to help sustain us as we strive to make a difference.
