Partners for Youth with Disabilities (PYD) is pleased to announce its Request for Letters of Interest for partner organizations in the Inclusive Fitness for Youth Initiative (IFYI). IFYI is an exciting program committed to increasing Boston youth with disabilities’ access to fitness and recreation programs. Funded by The Boston Foundation, this initiative holds the potential to create population-level change among Boston-based youth with disabilities with regard to social, physical, and emotional well-being.
If chosen, an organization will receive an inclusion assessment, development of a work plan, customized inclusion support and training, and a sub-award between $5,000-$10,000 to make physical improvements or purchase adaptive equipment to increase access for youth with disabilities.
Interested applicants should review the 2014 Request for Letters of Interest document. Letters of Interest must be received by February 15, 2014. For questions regarding the process, please contact Genelle C. Thomas, National Center Director, at firstname.lastname@example.org or 904-383-9624.
Applications will be accepted from any program located within the geographic area served by The Boston Foundation. To find out if your program qualifies, check out TBF’s service area on their website.
