The Paso del Norte Health Foundation seeks Letters of Intent (LOIs) from eligible organizations to advance the Health Foundation’s Healthy Kids Initiative. Deadline to submit LOIs is Wednesday, September 14, 2022.
Areas of focus include:
- Increasing the number of disconnected youth ages 5-17 years old who participate in out-of-school time (OST) programs. Youth who are connected, are involved in out-of-school time activity, in a safe place, with a caring adult, tend to avoid situations and behaviors that compromise health while engaging in activity that promotes health.
- Increasing job readiness, advanced education credentials, and expanded paid job opportunities for young adults ages 16-24 years old disconnected from school and work. Evidence shows that early adult years are critical for building new skills through work, obtaining work credentials, and making career decisions.
Eligible applicants include tax-exempt nonprofit organizations, including churches and units of government, located in the Paso del Norte region.
