February 1, 2022 at 5 p.m. EST



The New York Life Foundation is seeking applications from afterschool, summer, or expanded learning programs serving middle-school youth. In total, $1.8 million in grants will be awarded to programs all across the country. This is the sixth year of the Foundation’s Aim High grant competition, bringing the total amount awarded to $7.95 million. A total of 40 grant awards will be made nationwide.

Two-year grant applicants will need to demonstrate results around indicators of success such as on-time promotion; school attendance rates; improved behavior, grades and test scores; and/or the development of social and emotional skills. One-year grant applicants will need to describe how they intend to improve the supports they provide to youth related to social justice and racial equity efforts.

For all three tiers, grant funds may be used for technical assistance, enhancing direct service activities, and/or program expansion. Applicants will need to describe how programs support youth in the transition to the ninth grade and how they are continuing to serve youth in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic.
