Forward Promise Empowerment Projects

Forward Promise: Empowerment Projects will support organizations that provide culturally relevant and evidence-supported responses to trauma to boys and young men of color ages 12-24, while promoting opportunities for them to heal, grow, and thrive.

Through this initiative, Forward Promise will support up to nine organizations to strengthen their capacity to provide programming for boys and young men of color; enhance their ability to use data and research; and increase their ability to influence policy and practice in support of culturally responsive, trauma-informed, and healing-promoting strategies for boys and young men of color.

Selected grantees will receive a grant of up to $150,000 or $450,000 in total over two years. Selected applicants will be invited to submit full proposals, followed by site visits in the Summer. Awards will be announced later in the Fall.

Complete information about the CFP and how to apply is also available at www.rwjf.org/cfp/fwp3. The deadline for submitting brief proposals is May 2, 2017 at 3:00pm EST.
