Lilly Endowment launched the Youth Program Resilience Fund (YPRF) to help address some of the unique challenges of Indiana youth-serving organizations related to the COVID-19 pandemic so they can better serve the needs of youth, ages five to 18, in accordance with public health guidance.
Carefully review the Request for Information and assess your organization’s eligibility to apply.
IYI is supporting the Lilly Endowment’s YPRF by offering a series of free recorded workshops. To view the recordings, see below:
- Workshop 1: Overview of the YPRF Request for Information
- Workshop 2: Space/ Place Modifications and Adaptive Safety Guidelines
- Workshop 3: Telling Your COVID-19 Impact Story
- Workshop 4: COVID-19 Resources & Tips for Youth–serving Organizations
Although the Endowment is interested in the positive development of all youth, it has a special interest in removing barriers for youth who face the following challenges:
- Are in low-income families and qualify for free and reduced-price lunch
- Are members of communities of color or immigrant populations that are disproportionately impacted by COVID-19 and other health and social challenges
- Are at high risk of lacking adequate adult supervision, care or protection
- Have physical or developmental disabilities
- Are exposed to adverse childhood experiences in the home or community that impact healthy development, including violence, substance abuse, mental health illnesses and disorders, parental incarceration, or other traumatic experiences:
If your organization is interested in this opportunity, please review this FAQ and join us for the workshop series. Continued thanks for all that you do to serve Indiana’s children and youth!
