Grants starting at $75,000 to Hillsborough County, Florida nonprofit organizations and government agencies for programs and services that benefit the area's families and children. Applicants must attend a workshop prior to applying. Funding is intended for programs that promote the health, safety, education, and development of children. The purpose of the grant is to provide support for fathers and father figures with young children (from birth to age 8), and be inclusive of other family members. Proposals should use an evidence-based or evidence-informed curriculum of service delivery that sustains father/father figure involvement and is a program not currently funded by the Children’s Board.

Focus areas:

  • Children are Healthy and Safe: Early preventative health and education prepares a family to develop nurturing and healthy habits which are enhanced by coordination with community partners including healthcare systems and primary care providers.
  • Children are Developmentally on Track: Early Identification of developmental needs for children birth to age five is essential for optimizing a child’s potential and serves as an opportunity for caregivers to learn more about their child’s current developmental functioning.
  • Children are Ready to Learn and Succeed: School readiness services for young children should be designed in a way that foster a nurturing, safe and healthy environment for children and respects a families’ cultural values. In addition, quality early learning must also promote early caregiver involvement and professional development for early care educators. School success for elementary school age children works best in collaboration with teachers, administrators and parents to provide support consistent with school benchmarks. Successful youth services (through middle school age) support leadership development, provides positive role modeling, and motivates students to learn in safe environments.
  • Family Support: Support for the whole family is essential for developing informal supports, stability and overall well-being. Family Support plays an important role in a young child’s brain development because early experiences develop through positive relationships, which establishes the foundation for secure attachments and future physical, cognitive and social-emotional health.
