Eligible programs must provide community-level services designed to promote positive youth development and respond to locally identified youth needs in Madison County. 

These funds are available on a competitive basis and must be used for the delivery of services between January 1st and December 31st, 2020. Eligible programs must be outcome based and provide quantifiable and verifiable indicators by which program performance will be measured. All programs seeking funding must track one of the OCFS outcome measures for each service, opportunity and support that the program is addressing.
