Funding Opportunity: NLC’s CHAMPS Grant Helps Cities Fund After School and Summer Lunch Programs

July 22, 2016
The Institute for Local Government (ILG) and the League of California Cities® are working with National League of Cities (NLC) to provide support to cities interested in strengthening efforts to ensure youth stay healthy, engaged and on a positive developmental path.
 
NLC’s Cities Combating Hunger through After School and Summer Meal Programs (CHAMPS) is a grant opportunity for cities to ensure low-income youth continue to have access to healthy food when school is out.

City agencies in California are eligible to apply for $5,000-$40,000 grants and technical assistance to enhance their efforts to combat childhood hunger when school is out through USDA summer and after school meal programs. These grant funds can be used to support activities (through December 2017) such as: youth employment, promotional activities, operational needs and other supports that increase access to out-of-school-time meal programs.
 
Apply online.
 
If you have questions contact NLC’s Jamie Nash or ILG’s Patrice Chamberlain.
