Beacon Community Center Requests for Proposals

The Department of Youth and Community Development has released two Requests for Proposals for organizations prequalified in the relevant service areas - Beacon Community Centers and Beacon Community Centers with Administration for Children’s Services (ACS) Prevention Services. Beacons serve youth from kindergarten through age 21 and adults ages 22 and older including seniors. Located in public schools across New York City they operate year-round in non-school hours on weekdays, weekends, and in the summer. The ACS Beacon Prevention programs provide preventive services to families with youth at risk of foster care placement in a manner which ensures the safety of the youth and preserves, supports, and strengthens the family, when appropriate. Proposals for Beacon Community Centers are due May 24, 2017 and Centers with ACS Prevention on May 31, 2017. Visit the HHS Accelerator system for more information and to apply.
