Funding Opportunity: Youth/Teen Programming in Bayside

Women United, a giving circle of United Way of Greater Portland (UWGP), is pleased to announce a funding opportunity to provide enhanced youth/teen programming to members of its Project WIN cohort and others in Portland’s Bayside area. We are currently accepting letters from interested programs.

Overview:

Women United’s primary investment is in Project WIN, a Two-Generation cohort-based program that supports low-income single mothers and their families in Portland’s Bayside area. In Fiscal Year 2022, Women United wishes to expand their Two-Generation approach by investing in more intentional and directed programming for Project WIN cohort children ages 9+ who have aged out of early care and education services in the community.   

We are seeking to fund structured youth/teen programming in proximity to (within walking distance of) Bayside Anchor. Programming should prioritize Project WIN participant children but may be open to other youth/teens in the Bayside neighborhood. Program components could include one or more of the following: age-appropriate academic supports, after-school programming, parent engagement, pre-employment/teen employment planning and placement, high school graduation, post-secondary preparation and services that promote and treat youth behavioral health..

One-time funding is available for September 1, 2021 – August 31, 2022. The total investment pool is up to $75,000. (Awards may be made to one or more organizations or programs.)

Please see the below LOI form for full details.
