The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) has launched the Children and Youth Resilience Challenge. This initiative invites proposals for community-led solutions to promote the resilience and mental health of children and youth affected by COVID-19 and other disasters.
Proposals that advance equity for historically underserved communities are encouraged. Community-based and youth-led organizations, youth-serving entities, and individuals are eligible to apply.
Proposals are due July 7, 2023.
The Challenge is part of the President's Unity Agenda and Mental Health Strategy.
