DescriptionThe Foundation of the Greater New Orleans Foundation seeks to level the playing field for the most vulnerable children and youth in Louisiana's Orleans and Jefferson parishes. The Foundation will award grants to organizations serving children and youth. Priority will be given to organizations that help children birth to age 8 meet attainable developmental milestones, such as kindergarden readiness through access to early childhood education; literacy building programs that assure on-level reading by third grade; enrichment programs in music, art, dance, and science/technology/engineering/mathematics; behavioral health and social-emotional supports; training for parents and educators helping children from birth to age 8; summer learning loss prevention programs for K-3 students; and special education and autism spectrum programs. The Foundation will also give priority to organizations that provide vocational and educational opportunities for youth up to age 24 who are at particularly high-risk, such as homeless youth, youth with special needs, and youth who are in foster care, group homes, or juvenile justice facilities. Eligible programs include educational remediation or growth opportunities; vocational and work-readiness training and apprenticeships; or life-skills training and leadership opportunities. Applications are accepted between October 1 and November 1. Additional information can be found on the Web site.
