Request for proposals accepted on a rolling basis through June 30, 2024
The Virginia Foundation for Healthy Youth (VFHY) is excited to announce a new round of three-year Tobacco Use Prevention funding intentionally designed for youth in the care of Virginia’s Department of Juvenile Justice (DJJ).
VFHY will fund DJJ Centers up to $50,000 per year for three years (up to $150,000 total).
Online proposals will be accepted on a rolling basis. Organizations can be funded through June 30, 2024.
Before completing this application, please:
This Targeted Grant will fund DJJ Centers over the next three years. A “Center” can include any of DJJ’s Regional Juvenile Detention Centers (JDC) and its Correctional Center (JCC).
A majority of youth at a Center should be under 18 years of age and/or pursuing a high school diploma/GED. If this condition is met, a Center may offer programming to all youth participants in its care regardless of age. Additionally, Centers may offer programming in multiple settings (e.g., Post-D, Community Placement, Re-Entry, etc.).
The following documents should be reviewed prior to writing a proposal:
The following forms need to be downloaded and saved. You will edit these forms and upload them as part of your online proposal.
If your organization does not already have a grant portal account, you will be prompted to create a new one before you can view the application.
