Request for Proposals: $12m Youth Fund!

Request for proposals are now available for the Baltimore Children and Youth Fund! Baltimore City Council President Bernard C. “Jack” Young introduced the legislation to create the $12 million Fund and voters approved it via referendum in 2016. The Fund is a historic initiative aimed at improving conditions and opportunities for Baltimore children, youth and young adults under the age of 24.

Following a comprehensive community design and implementation planning process, during which Baltimore residents weighed in on the direction and Year 1 priorities of the fund, Associated Black Charities, on behalf of the Baltimore City Mayor & City Council, is now accepting Requests for Proposals (RFP) for the Fund’s first round of grant awards.

In support of this effort, two information sessions will be conducted. There will be a brief explanation given about Youth Fund planning process, overview of the RFP, and also opportunities for question and answers.

One session has transpired and the remaining takes place on:

Wednesday, June 13th 2018  from 4:30-6:00 pm and can be accessed via webinar.
