Most of the services provided by the Department of Children, Youth & Their Families are done through the department’s grant making function. The primary source of funding for grants is the Children’s Services Allocation Fund. Grants through this fund are generally for three years. The current contract period runs from July 2010 to June 2013. A second source of grant funds is the City’s General Fund. These grants can be offered at various times.
