Six Grants Available: Background
A Children’s Initiative is a neighborhood or community in Florida where the infrastructure and opportunities that middle‐class communities take for granted are nonexistent or so marginal that they are ineffective. In order to support a community seeking a Children’s Initiative designation, the Florida Department of Children and Families is offering a one-time grant of $50,000. The planning grant is for any neighborhood or community located in a county that does not already have a Florida Children’s Initiative designation.
