Children, Youth & Families Program
Investing in the well-being of young people
We are once again opening our Children, Youth & Families Emotional Well-Being Grant Program. To keep the well-being of children and youth at the forefront of our response and recovery, we are offering youth development nonprofits in our catchment area a grant opportunity to develop new or expanded programs and resources that enhance emotional health supports for children of all ages.
Emotional Well-Being Grant Guidelines 2022:
Programming may be targeted to children, parents/guardians, caregivers, teachers, and others working directly with youth, and could include one-on-one supports, support groups, education, outreach and messaging, or other creative strategies that address a range of issues including, but not limited to, stress, anxiety, depression, fear, loneliness, and grief.
Applicants must have a 501 (c)3 designation and be based in or primarily serving constituents in our catchment communities which include Acton, Concord, Framingham, Hudson, Lincoln, Marlborough, Maynard, Natick, Stow, Sudbury, and Wayland.
Applicants may request up to $20,000 in funding. A limited number of grants will be available.
Interested nonprofits should submit a Concept Paper for review by August 10, 2022.
