Strengthening Native American Communities and Economies
Now Accepting Grant Proposals for First Nations’ Advancing Positive Paths for Native American Boys and Young Men Program
First Nations Development Institute (First Nations) is now accepting proposals from organizations working to address the disproportionately high at-risk factors faced by Native male youth in Arizona, New Mexico and Texas. This initiative will support efforts aimed at improving education and employment outcomes for middle school and high school-aged Native boys and young men.
First Nations is looking to fund existing projects that address one or both of these areas of interest:
- Early intervention strategies that focus on dropout prevention and increasing middle school retention and high school graduation rates.
- Policy and programmatic efforts that elevate the importance of a caring adult to re-engage youth who may be disconnected from work or school.
Eligible applicants include but are not limited to: tribal governments, tribally run programs, tribally funded or controlled educational institutions, and Native American-controlled 501(c)(3) nonprofit organizations. Applicants must serve Native male youth in Arizona, New Mexico, and/or Texas.
First Nations expects to award four to eight grants ranging from $38,000 to $50,000 each, with a grant term starting October 1, 2014, and ending September 30, 2015. Grant applications will be accepted via our online system and are due by 5 p.m. Mountain Time on Thursday, August 28, 2014.
Technical Support for Application Preparation & Submission
First Nations will host two optional Question and Answer (Q&A) sessions for interested applicants prior to the application deadline. These Q&A sessions will provide an opportunity for applicants to ask questions about the application, proposal criteria, or other proposal-related questions.
Technical support for application preparation and submission will be held on:
- Thursday, August 7, 2014, 2 p.m. MDT
- Wednesday, August 13, 2014, 10 a.m. MDT
The call-in number for both calls will be 1-877-427-7602 (toll free).
The conference code is 375.453.5193.
