The Department and Fund for Children and Youth were created in order to provide a sustainable funding stream for youth-serving organizations in Richmond and North Richmond. This will be done by providing grant funding to various organizations serving Richmond and North Richmond youth under the age of 24. The first grants will be distributed by July 2020.
The Department is currently working to establish the 15-person Oversight Board needed to guide the development of a community needs assessment, a strategic investment plan, and allocation of funds for chosen youth-serving organizations.
