Grants to Washington, DC nonprofit organizations to provide summer camps for children and youth between the ages of 5 and 17 in eligible regions. Priority is given to programs that serve at-risk youth. Funding is intended for organizations providing intentional opportunities to help youth reach developmental outcomes and have meaningful roles in their community.
The Summer Strong Coordinating Entity 2022 RFA invites high-performing, fiscally responsible, nonprofit youth development organizations serving children and youth to apply for this grant competition. Organizations applying must demonstrate (1) experience managing a summer camp or youth programming, (2) experience managing subcontractors or willingness to work with subcontractors, and (3) ability to implement evidence-based practices that support positive youth development. This RFA is being offered in partnership with DCHA and DHS. The intent of this RFA is to select coordinating entities that will manage high-quality summer camps and subcontract with grassroots entities to provide educational, social, emotional, and physical health opportunities and activities for children and youth at any DCHA or DHS properties agreed upon for children and youth ages 5-17. The OST Office will issue an RFA in December for subcontractors to apply to work with the coordinating entity. Organizations applying must serve youth through a positive youth development approach. Organizations may serve children and youth who reside outside the District, however, these funds may only be applied to children and youth1 who reside in the District. For this RFA, the term youth will be used to describe both children and youth.
For the purposes of this RFA, summer camp is defined as a structured, supervised learning or youth development opportunity offered to a distinct group of District youth during the summer months for a minimum of 8 hours per day, 5 days a week, for 6 consecutive weeks.
