Grants of up to $20,000 to Louisiana nonprofit organizations for summertime programs that benefit children and youth in eligible locations. Funding is intended to expand and improve services for young people, between the ages of 11 and 24, over the upcoming summer months. Eligible applicants are located in and serve Orleans Parish. The goal of the grant program is to help youth-serving organizations broaden supports over the summer – often a time of vulnerability for low-income youth due to the lack of daily school and the support that is provided in a school setting. Priority will be given to organizations serving youth of color below the ALICE Threshold.

Summer Impact Grants broadened supports may include but are not limited to reduced program cost to families, behavioral health supports, expanded summer nutrition/meals, expanded hours or duration of programming, and connecting youth with an educational, vocational, and/or employment setting when summer programming ends. Successful implementation will help close the achievement gap, improve health outcomes, reduce crime, and scale programs in locations where they’re needed most.

A project may focus on a wide variety of youth issues or may be very narrowly focused. Nevertheless, proposed programs must align with one of the six priority areas of focus and lift up at least one solution on page 6 of the New Orleans Youth Master Plan: 

  • Health and Wellbeing
  • Youth Voice
  • Learning
  • Safety & Justice
  • Space & Place 
  • Economic Stability

Funds must be used to expand or enhance summer 2022 programming – not used to start a new program.
