Grants to New York City community-based organizations to improve educational outcomes in local schools. Applicants must pre-qualify prior to applying. Funding is intended to enhance student achievement, increase graduation rates, and promote equitable outcomes for vulnerable populations in elementary school through high school. The Community Schools model has an integrated focus on academics, physical and mental health services, social services, expanded learning opportunities, positive youth development, and family and community supports.
