Despite federal budget uncertainty, children and youth program providers can still tap into a range of private and federal funding opportunities that will be available for the current fiscal year.
Some federal programs endure the ebb-and-flow of the annual appropriations process. These include the Administration for Children & Families' Street Outreach Program. This $9 million ACF effort funds programs for street-based services to run away, homeless and street youth at risk of sexual abuse, prostitution or sexual exploitation. Grants seekers may not know it is projected for release early next year. Also on the list is a reengineered version of the $63 million investing in Innovation program at the Education Dept.
