Grants to Maryland nonprofit organizations in eligible locations for community-based programs to enhance the lives of young residents. Funding is intended to support programs that address needs and provide new opportunities for children, youth, and young adults living in Baltimore.

The Family League of Baltimore believes they can improve the lives of local youth and young adults by working together and focusing on their needs. This includes offering a wide variety of valuable programs within city neighborhoods. In FY23, funding will be invested to support programming for youth in grades Pre-K through 12 and young adults up to age 24 that are operating in community-based settings.

These youth and young adult programs will provide participants with a safe space to learn, explore new ideas and opportunities, improve skills, discover new talents, build connections and experience success. With this Request for Application (RFA), Family League and the Mayor’s Office are striving to increase and expand the number of opportunities for young people in their city.
