2016 Guidelines for Applying for Youth Services Improvement Grants

Updated for 2016, the application guidelines for the Youth Services Improvement Grants program outlines eligibility and selection criteria, as well as detailed instructions on preparing and submitting an effective application.

The goal of the Youth Services Improvement Grants program is to strengthen existing youth services by addressing issues or problems at the point of service, where staff and youth interact. These grants fund specific, standalone projects that will make services more effective and, ultimately, provide youth with better experiences. Eligible organizations serve youth ages 5 to 25 in New York City.

The online application will open on February 1, 2016. All applications must be received by March 11, 2016 at 3:00 p.m. EST.
