HHS Region 9:
The Southern California Program seeks to promote the education and healthy development of children and youth, strengthen families and enhance the lives of people in the greater Los Angeles area through its support of organizations that provide arts and cultural enrichment, civic and community services, early childhood and pre-collegiate education, and healthcare.
Projects that address compelling issues and have the potential to have a significant impact on the target population, organization, region and/or field are encouraged. A special emphasis is placed on projects that focus on children and youth from low-income families and special needs populations. Collaborative initiatives as well as projects arising from the vision of one organization’s strong leadership are supported. Nonprofit organizations, including colleges and universities, pursing relevant projects in Los Angeles County are eligible to apply.
To be eligible, organizations must be headquartered in Southern California or be a national or statewide organization with (a) an independent affiliate, or (b) a local chapter or local office in Southern California that serves communities in Los Angeles County. The project must benefit communities within Los Angeles County. Letters of intent for the upcoming cycle are due February 15, 2021.
