Grants of up to $50,000 to New York nonprofit organizations in eligible areas for summer programs for at-risk youth. Priority is given to proposals for the creation of a new program or the expansion or addition to an existing program that includes an in-person component designed to prevent summer learning loss for at-risk youth. Activities that also include a programming component for special needs populations will be given higher priority.
The Agency Partner Grant (APG) Program awards funding to nonprofit agencies based on their ability to demonstrate they are able to fill a gap where an existing community need exists. The needs for this grant program were established by taking into consideration conditions that limit individuals from achieving their fullest social, economic, or health-related potential, with input from members of nonprofit organizations in Dutchess County and other community stakeholders. The needs have evolved since the inception of the grant program and are reviewed annually, with input from stakeholders.
Through the 2021 budget process, additional money was allocated to further support summer programming targeting at-risk youth to reduce the occurrence of summer learning loss. While the county has provided funding to support critical programming for at-risk youth, it has been identified that additional funds were needed to enhance programming in this area.
Summer Programs for At-Risk Youth: In-person, high-quality programs, for K-12 students. Programs should offer broad educational and recreational enrichment activities that incorporate science, technology, engineering, art, and math exploration components designed to reinforce or complement the student’s regular academic program. Programs should encourage prosocial behaviors, promote behavioral health outcomes, and the overall well-being of program participants.
Participants must be Dutchess County residents and should meet one of the low- and moderate-income eligibility guidelines, which can be found in the Application Instructions and Guidance:
