Grants to Washington nonprofit organizations, federally recognized tribes, school districts, and municipalities to provide high quality out-of-school programming for children and youth in eligible areas. Funding is intended to improve access to health, educational, and social-emotional support that will assist children and youth succeed through the key transitional years. This program should benefit northeast Spokane residents.

The Zone Project is a multi-sector initiative focused on safe and nurtured kids, thriving families, and connected schools and neighborhoods in northeast Spokane. 

To support the whole child and whole family, the ELP will work closely with Spokane Public Schools, families, youth-serving organizations and health, education and social service partners. The intention of this program is to support and align high-quality, out-of-school programming that is measurable and sustainable.

When developing your proposal, please consider incorporating one or more of the following:

  • Programming that will equitably serve students from racial or ethnic minority populations, students with special learning needs, English-language developing students, low-income students, foster youth or those living with other family members (“kinship”).
  • Programming that will provide support for students in key transition periods between Pre-K, elementary, middle and/or high school. Higher consideration will go to programs serving youth, ages 12-18, in transition from 6th and 8th grades. 
  • Programming that will engage multiple age groups or work with partners to coordinate services to siblings from the same families.
  • Higher consideration will be given to collaborative proposals from organizations partnering to improve services for students. 

Proposals for summer grant funding must advance at least one of the following student outcomes:

  • Learning performance – including, but not limited to, demonstrated improvement in reading and math.
  • School engagement, as measured by attendance days.
  • Student behavior and reduced referrals for discipline issues (suspension for middle/high).
  • Growth in social-emotional learning measures (district assessment measures).
  • Kindergarten readiness.

Successful proposals will also address one or more of the following program objectives:

  • Expand programming to meet the needs of all students (cultural, special learning, behavioral needs, etc.).
  • Improve coordination of out-of-school programs with schools in northeast Spokane.
  • Engage parents and families in developing and implementing goals for student outcomes
