Additional Information on Eligibility
OJJDP invites applications from private nonprofit and for-profit organizations, including faith-based, community-based, and tribal organizations. For-profit organizations must agree to forego any profit or management fee. Eligibility is restricted to organizations that have been in existence for at least 3 years, have had programs in five or more states for at least a full calendar year, and have established a strong presence in their communities. National organizations are ineligible to apply. National organizations are defined as having an active program or programs with affiliates in at least 45 states. Eligible applicants must also demonstrate that state and local officials recognize them as a viable force in addressing youth issues through their mentoring programs. In addition, applicants must demonstrate current relationships and agreements with existing youth serving agencies, including faith-based, community, and tribal organizations, to create the necessary network to meet the individual needs of the youth constituents. Funding is intended to serve individual organizations. However, multiple public and private organizations may play a pivotal role in supporting mentoring programs and may be sub-recipients/contractors to the applicant. Eligible applicants who propose to provide direct services to youth must not include youth who are age 18 or older in the population to be served.
