Funding Opportunities

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

Funding amounts are estimates and may change due to a variety of factors.  The funding amounts will be updated as more information is available.

Organizations and individuals previously approved through an Request for Qualification (RFQ) process DO NOT need to re-apply. However, if an organization or individual wants to be approved in another category, they would need to apply for that particular RFQ.
