Grant Eligibility and Guidelines
At present, there are few, if any, programs focused on food insecurity in New York City that follow pregnant women through their pregnancies and into the first two years of their child’s life. ATE’s goal for the next few years is to identify and fund projects that address that issue taking into account the obstacles to food security (lack of money, lack of time, limited access to nutritious food, and unfamiliarity with a variety of ingredients, cooking methods and recipes) as well as the imparting of the newest nutritional information for pregnant women, babies and young children. ATE is interested in innovative, effective, replicable and/or expandable programs with long-term impact. Successful applicants will have the potential to effect change and engage their communities in meaningful ways that will lead to healthier families. Grants will be project-oriented; ATE will not be funding general operating support.
ATE will offer grants up to $25,000 per year and may continue funding for up to three years if deemed appropriate.
Organizations and individuals working within the five boroughs of New York City may apply to ATE by completing the following preliminary proposal. Organizations that qualify will be asked to complete a full grant application.
The 2017-2018 grants cycle is as follows:
December 15, 2017 – preliminary proposals due
January 30, 2018 – decisions on who will be asked for full proposals
March 9, 2018 – full proposals due
April 15 – decisions on 2018 Grantees.
