The Oneida County Youth Bureau is accepting proposals from non-profit organizations and cities, towns and villages to provide programs for delinquency prevention, recreation and positive youth development during 2020.
Two categories of funding are available:
• Youth Development Program funding is for non-profit agencies and cities, towns and villages that operate a youth development program that provides direct services to youth. The state will reimburse 100% of its qualified expenditures, subject to available appropriations and exclusive of federal funding.
• Runaway and Homeless Youth Act funding for non-profit agencies that provide crisis and transitional living services. A 40% agency match is required.
Proposals are due via email to firstname.lastname@example.org by close of business on Dec. 20.
Programs that are funded must meet guidelines established by the New York State Office of Children and Family Services. The guidelines and forms necessary to prepare and submit proposals can be accessed online at www.ocgov.net/youth and by then clicking on the appropriate red RFP to the left. Any questions or technical assistance should be directed to Karen Pensero-Shanley of the Youth Bureau at 315-798-5027.
