Grants to USA nonprofit organizations to provide out-of-school programs for underserved middle school students. Funding is intended to help students make the transition into high school, and to support youth from communities struggling with substance abuse. Funding is intended for summer and after school programs. Programs should be led and staffed by knowledgeable and competent individuals who employ effective strategies that help ensure middle school students continue on to 9th grade and through to graduation day.
This competitive grant program includes both one- and two-year grant opportunities. Applicants can only apply for one of the three tiers of grants.
Two year grants, tiers one and two: These grant funds may be used for technical assistance, capacity building, enhancing direct service activities, and/or program expansion. Two-year grant recipients will need to report on indicators of success such as on-time promotion to the 9th grade; school attendance rates; improved behavior, grades, and test scores; and the development of social and emotional skills.
One year targeted grants, tier three: Across the county, in communities struggling with the misuse of opioids and other substances, afterschool and summer learning programs are playing a critical role by fostering protective factors, increasing resilience among young people, supporting positive youth development, and reducing risk factors among children and youth. Grants will help programs build protective and preventive factors (self-esteem, mentorship, and more) and reduce risk factors for youth, understand adverse childhood experiences (ACEs), employ trauma-informed approaches, or provide other supports for youth and families impacted by substance misuse.
These grant funds may be used for technical assistance, capacity building, and/or enhancing direct service activities. Unlike the 2-year grants, the 1-year grants are specifically intended to fund out-ofschool-time (OST) providers to help improve the supports they provide to children and families in communities that have been impacted by widespread misuse of opioids and other substances.
