Applications will be accepted between June 12th and 26th.

*The application period for this opportunity has closed. Submitted  applications are currently under review.

This funding opportunity is not tied to the FY16 city budget’s increased investment in out-of-school-time programming and community schools. A separate RFP will be released later in June related to those funds.
