Children, Youth & Families Program

Investing in the future of Children, Youth & Families

The CY&F Capacity Building Grant Program is designed to help young people realize their full potential and become caring, productive citizens. The focus is on underserved youth who face economic and/or personal barriers to success. The program provides proven youth-serving nonprofits in our geographic catchment area with funds for capacity building projects designed to strengthen the agency’s core capacities.
