Grants Enhance Bereavement Programs for Youth
National Alliance for Grieving Children: Grief Reach Community Expansion Grants
The goal of the Grief Reach Community Expansion Grants program, administered by the National Alliance for Grieving Children with funding from the New York Life Foundation, is to provide support for children’s bereavement programs in order to expand their reach to underserved youth populations. The program offers grants, ranging from $15,000 to $100,000, to fund program expansion to include bereaved children and teens not currently served by existing services. A total of 50% of the children served by funded programs should be from low-income families, or 50% of the children should be from minority communities. Applicants must have been in operation as a 501(c)(3) for at least three consecutive years. The application deadline is July 31, 2015. Visit the National Alliance for Grieving Children’s website to review the funding guidelines.

Support for K-5 Healthy Living Programs

From our friends at GrantStation

Support for K-5 Healthy Living Programs
National PTA Healthy Lifestyles: Energy Balance 101 Grant Program
National PTA’s Healthy Lifestyles: Energy Balance 101 Grants provide local PTAs with tools to use in partnering with schools and engaging families in improving awareness of energy balance. (Energy balance is simply finding a balance between the calories we consume each day through what we eat and drink and the calories we burn though physical activity.) Participating PTAs will use the Energy Balance Enrichment Zone curricula to educate families on the importance of energy balance, good nutrition, and physical activity in achieving an active, healthy lifestyle; empower families to partner with schools to advocate for and support the implementation of healthy changes around nutrition and physical activity; and provide families with tools to create an environment at home that supports the positive changes at school. Twenty-five grants of $2,000 each will be awarded through the program to PTAs for grades K-5. The application deadline is June 19, 2015. Visit the National PTA website to download the Request for Proposals.
