The Washington State Department of Commerce is partnering with School’s Out Washington to implement the Washington Youth Development Nonprofit Relief Fund. This one-time investment will provide $9.3 million to youth development programs/organizations that have been most impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic and which support young people who are furthest from educational justice.

Over 600 applications were received by the deadline on October 6, 2020.  Currently, small groups of peer reviewers from across the state are reading and scoring applications. At the end of October, reviewers will meet to discuss the applications and provide feedback to School’s Out Washington. We expect to notify awardees in November and to issue payments in December 2020
