Grief Reach is a partnership between the National Alliance for Grieving Children and the New York Life Foundation. The goal of this partnership is to provide funds to children’s bereavement programs to expand the reach of their programs to include under-served youth populations (18 years and younger). New York LIfe has increased funding to $1.2 million in 2014 for two types of grants: Community Expansion Grants and and Capacity Building Grants.
Although the funds are generously donated by the New York Life foundation, the oversight and RFP process is managed by the National Alliance for Grieving Children. All grants are reviewed by a committee selected by the National Alliance for Grieving Children. This committee makes recommendations to New York Life Foundation. Final decisions on grants are made by the New York Life Foundation.
Community Expansion Grants: These grants are intended to fund program expansion to include bereaved children and teens not currently served by existing services. For more information about program grants, click HERE.
Capacity Building Grants: Capacity building grants will allow nonprofits to secure the professional and timely assistance necessary to enhance organizational capacity and address important issues of organizational development and effectiveness.

Deadline: Proposals will be accepted through July 7, 2014 at 8:00 pm EST/5:00 pm PST. No applications will be accepted after the July 7 deadline.
The National Alliance for Grieving Children will be holding an informational webinar about this year’s RFP process on Tuesday, May 13, 2014 at 2:00 pm EST/11:00 am PST. To register to attend, click HERE.
