Strengthening Member Agencies

FPWA strengthens member agencies and other human services providers by helping to build their operations and meet the needs of their communities. We do this by providing important capacity- and partnership building services as well as training and grants.

How we strengthen Member Agencies?

Center for Leadership Development

FPWA’s Center for Leadership Development (CLD) supports the capacity building and sustainability of FPWA member agencies.

For more information, please contact Program Manager Nakia Johnsn

Program Grants

FPWA awards program grants on an annual basis to three member agencies to support new direct service projects that are linked to FPWA’s advocacy agenda. Grants must address emerging social service issues or needs that the agency has identified. *Only FPWA 501(c)(3) members located in the NY metro area are eligible to apply.

Pro Bono Human Resource Assistance  


HR PRO provides free human resources assistance to FPWA member agencies only. It is a joint pilot project of FPWA and HR/NY, the New York chapter of the Society for Human Resource Management (SHRM). SHRM is a worldwide HR association of human resource professionals. The purpose of HR PRO is to provide strategic and technical support to social service agencies with limited resources for dealing with the myriad of human resources issues they face.
