Grant Opportunities
Health & Economic Supports for Trust-Funded Program Families
Does your Trust-funded program serve low-income families who can benefit from help to access benefits they might qualify for but don't currently receive (such as WIC, SNAP, TANF, KidCare, cash assistance, subsidized child care, housing and more)? Maximizing such supports for low-income families ultimately contributes to the broader local economy and child well-being and success. In addition to reducing children’s poverty and hunger, receiving public nutrition benefits in childhood is associated with benefits to health, school achievement, high school graduation and adult economic success. The Trust is releasing $600,000 in funding for family benefits enrollment supports to at least 6,000 families, and we strongly encourage our funded programs to offer this valuable service to families. You are eligible to apply if your agency serves at least 100 low-income families who might be eligible for benefits they are not tapping into. Even if you don't apply directly, you can partner with other community agencies that offer these value-add supports for your families. RFP release date was July 24; visit the Grants section of our website to learn about the application process, and the Grant Opportunities page to review the RFP in its entirety. Application deadline is September 6.
Funding for Computer Labs!
The IGT After-School Advantage Program provides nonprofit community agencies and public schools with state-of-the-art computer labs. These computer centers are designed to provide inner-city children ages 5-15 with a meaningful yet fun learning experience during the critical after-school hours, in a safe environment. This initiative is meant to provide an otherwise unavailable educational experience and bridge the digital divide among at-risk children. By applying its knowledge and expertise to this type of program IGT hopes to increase children’s interest in careers in computers and provide them with the necessary tools to help them become more competitive in school and in today’s job market. Proposals are accepted and reviewed on a rolling basis; click here for more information and application guidelines.
