Grants to New York City community-based organizations to improve educational outcomes in local schools. Funding is intended to enhance student achievement, increase graduation rates, and promote equitable outcomes for vulnerable populations in elementary school through high school. The Community Schools model has an integrated focus on academics, physical and mental health services, social services, expanded learning opportunities, positive youth development, and family and community supports.

Through collaborative planning, strategic resource allocation, and community-based partnerships, Community Schools create welcoming supportive environments that help students navigate barriers and build on strengths so that every student can thrive academically, socially, and emotionally. In New York City, the Community School Strategy has been proven to be effective in increasing graduation rates and student achievement and in reducing chronic absenteeism and disciplinary incidents.

Lead CBOs will coordinate all partners and align services with the NYCDOE’s school goals. Proposers, in conjunction with school leadership, staff, students, families, and communities, will be required to develop and implement the four evidenced-based features of the Community School Strategy:

  1. Collaborative Leadership and Practice
  2. Family and Community Empowerment
  3. Expanded Learning Time (ELT)
  4. Wellness and Integrated Supports
