Funding Opportunities

We choose schools and community-based organizations to provide services for children and youth through a competitive Request for Investment (RFI) process. To partner with schools, community-based organizations must complete the Requests for Qualifications (RFQ).  Some consultant and other services are selected through Requests for Proposals (RFPs).

Organizations previously approved through an RFQ process do NOT need to apply. However, if
an organization wants to be approved in another category, they would need to apply for that RFQ.

See Funding Archives for a list of all RFIs and RFQs released during the current Levy.
