Baltimore Children and Youth Fund Update
On June 6, Baltimore City announced a month-long request for proposal (RFP) period for the first round of disbursements from the $12 million Baltimore Children and Youth Fund. The RFP process follows a series of six community input sessions where Baltimore residents recommended investment areas. In the sessions, community members shared the most pressing needs for children and young people in their neighborhoods, and then they brainstormed recommendations for how the Fund could best address those needs. An approximately 30-person review committee comprised of community members will assess and score grant applications, and make recommendations to ABC.
Attendees will learn more about the priority investment areas, grant review process, and public engagement throughout the process from members of the planning team representing:
- Frontline Solutions
- UPD Consulting
- Associated Black Charities
This program is for Maryland Philanthropy Network Members only and is a follow-up to the November 2017 briefing Baltimore City's Children and Youth Fund Update.
