National Alliance for Grieving Children / New York Life Foundation: Grief Reach-Community Expansion GrantsDeadline: April 22, 2019
The National Alliance for Grieving Children in partnership with New York Life seeks to expand capacity and increase access of bereavement services for grieving youth with local organizations. Grief Reach-Community Expansion Grants must expand services to diverse populations, categories include:
- Geographic Expansion: Expanding services into a new geographic location
- Number Expansion: Expanding to serve more children and families where the applicant is currently located
- Population Expansion: Expanding to a new age or population group, such as pre-school, LGBTQ, etc.
- Program/Service Expansion: Starting new programming or services for the same children and families the applicant is currently serving, such as a specific program for suicide survivors; or if the applicant is an existing nonprofit that will begin offering bereavement services to children
