AVANCE Invites Grant Proposals From Nonprofit Organizations Serving Low-Income Hispanic Families
Deadline: March 16, 2011

AVANCE, Inc., a nonprofit organization that provides parent and early childhood education programs, is accepting proposals from nonprofit organizations serving low-income Hispanic families to enter into a regrant agreement with AVANCE to integrate the AVANCE program model into their existing services.

Since 1973, AVANCE has worked to provide innovative education and family support services to predominantly Hispanic families in low-income, at-risk communities, primarily in Texas. The organization’s comprehensive Parent-Child Education Program promotes community economic development, positive parenting skills and behaviors, school readiness, parental school involvement, adult education, and civic engagement for a simultaneous impact on both the parent and child. The program has improved the school readiness of children and has had a strong impact on Latino families through partnerships with community-based organizations.

With support from the W.K. Kellogg Foundation, AVANCE created the Unlocking America’s Potential Project to expand its evidence-based Parent-Child Education Program across the United States. As part of the project, AVANCE will regrant funds to twelve qualified organizations serving low-income Hispanic families in order to add the Parent-Child Education Program model to their existing services. The UAPP grant allows for a one-time payment of $50,000 to selected organizations to help with initial setup costs. AVANCE will provide training and guidance with all new partners.

Applicants must be a nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization, provide a detailed sustainability plan to demonstrate long-term viability, and agree to adopt the AVANCE model in its entirety.
