Request for Proposals: Summer Youth Program Fund

May 5, 2021

April 26, 2021 - United Way of Greater New Haven is launching a Summer Youth Program Grant Fund to help youth organizations adapt their existing summer programs to safely serve young people through in-person or hybrid programming. To learn more about what will be considered, and to apply for this funding, complete the application form by 5:00pm on Monday, May 10, 2021. You may be contacted with follow-up questions. A grant review committee made up of young people, community members, and United Way staff will make grant determinations. Awards will be announced the week of May 24, 2021.

After facilitating multiple community conversations with young people, youth organizations, and community partners, we recognized a clear need for additional funds to help programs adapt. Young people need access to quality in-person time with their peers, and time with adults who “get” and listen to them. Additional staffing is needed at youth organizations to support the increased social and emotional needs of young people transitioning back to in-person activities, as well as additional PPE and program equipment to offer safe and physically distant programming. Apply today!
