On June 5, 2018, Richmond voters approved Measures E and K, known as the Richmond Kids First Initiative, which approved a City of Richmond charter amendment (Article 15) to create a Department of Children and Youth and require that a portion of the General Fund be set aside to fund youth programs and services. The total projected amount available for FY 2021-2022 grant awards is approximately $1.5 million in the initial year. Grants awarded through this process will be for an initial one-year period, July 1, 2021, to June 30, 2022 (FY 2021-2022), which can be renewed up to two additional one-year periods between July 1, 2022 to June 30, 2024, contingent on past year’s grant performance and availability of funds.
