Community Youth Development Request for Application Released

Request for Applications: The Prevention and Early Intervention (PEI) Division seeks applications to develop and implement local Community Youth Development (CYD) programs in communities across Texas. CYD supports youth by fostering safe spaces, positive relationships, and structured opportunities to build developmental assets and skills. These supports lead to strengthened connection, engagement, and contribution to their community. PEI has adopted a Positive Youth Development approach for CYD to meet the goal of assisting communities in alleviating conditions in the family and community that lead to juvenile crime.

The RFA can be found at the following link.

Due Date: Applications are due December 14, 2020 at 2:00 P.M. Central Time.
