Grants Look to Improve the Health, Education, and Employment of Young Men of Color

The Robert Wood Johnson Foundation is planning to make 10 grants of up to $500,000 each for programs to strengthen health, education, and employment outcomes for young men of color. The foundation is issuing a call for proposals for projects that deal with school discipline, dropout prevention, mental health interventions, and career training.

The foundation is particularly looking for projects that blend workforce training and education to ensure that young men of color are college- and career-ready.
