Our Youth Service Improvement Grants (YSIG) share the goal of our research grants: improving the lives of youth. We focus on small to medium-size organizations that have already had some success, but lack the funds to make needed improvements.
The YSIG program is open to community-based organizations in the five boroughs of New York City that want to improve the quality of the services they offer to young people. Awards are $25,000. Now, applications are accepted for programs that serve youth ages 5 to 25, instead of the previous age range of 8 to 25.
