The Trust
The DC Children and Youth Investment Trust Corporation (the Trust) is the primary resource for
developing partnerships that expand and improve services and opportunities for children and youth in
the District of Columbia, especially during their time out of school. The partnerships include those with
public schools, city agencies, nonprofit providers and funders.

The Trust provides grants, technical assistance, youth worker training, capacity building, learning
opportunities, convenings, and policy support in the District. The Trust supports and develops the
highest quality programs, encourages innovation in services and organizations, and invests in activities
that will create better outcomes for DC’s children and youth.




Philosophy of Investment
Funded organizations become partners in the Trust’s philosophy of investment, which includes:
    Performance-based granting – payment and continuation depends on progress regarding a
       work plan
    Data Collection and Management – a computerized management information system (MIS) is
       used to collect and evaluate data from grantees on things such as:
           o Services to children, youth and parents
           o Attendance of children, youth and parents
           o Expenditures
    Grantee Network - Grantees must attend regularly scheduled grantee meetings
    Affinity Groups – Grantees are encouraged to participate in affinity group meetings
    Training and Program Development – Participation in DC BEST curriculum is required for all
       Parent Center programs. Each program will be required to have:
           o at least two (2) front-line/direct service workers complete the 30-hour Advancing Youth
                Development (AYD) course;
           o at least one (1) employee complete the AYD Supervisors course (15 hours); and
           o at least one (1) employee complete the Navigating Youth Culture course.
       In addition, programs must participate in technical assistance to assist with meeting work plan
       goals and organizational development.

FY10 Request for Proposals
The Trust is pleased to announce the availability of funding and invites qualified applicants to submit
proposals to provide high quality Parent Center programs that will help the District’s children and youth
meet developmental outcomes by providing opportunities, services, and supports to parents and
guardians during the Trust’s Fiscal Year 2010 (October 1-September 30, 2010). Proposals are requested
for programs serving parents, guardians, and caregivers of children and youth from infants to 18 years of
age. Applicants must employ the youth development philosophy (See pages 6-8.) in its approach and
program design. Proposals will be funded in three categories: Family Wellness, Parenting, and School
& Community Involvement. Applicants are allowed to submit no more than two (2) proposals in
response to this RFP. The total available for granting is $750,000.

Goals for Children and Youth
The Trust is seeking proposals for high quality programs that will help improve the outcomes for the
District’s young people. The Trust fully participates in a city-wide collaborative effort known as the
Interagency Collaboration and Services Integration Commission (ICSIC) to attain the following six goals
for our children and youth:

       Children are ready for school.
       Children and youth succeed in school.
       Children and youth are healthy and practice healthy behaviors.
       Children and youth engage in meaningful activities.
       Children and youth live in healthy, stable and supportive families.
       All youth make a successful transition into adulthood.

The Trust recognizes that families are a critical partner in supporting the positive development of
children and youth. Therefore, family engagement must be an integral and intentional part of the larger
strategy for promoting opportunities, services, and supports for children and youth in the District of
Columbia. As a result, the Trust is reframing its Parent Center grant funding to make family engagement
a priority, and sharpen our focus and work as a more effective partner in youth development in the
District. Our goal is to support innovative family engagement programs that place an emphasis on
increasing parents’, guardians’ and caregivers’ abilities to utilize youth development based parenting
practices to foster a family environment that promotes youth development. Youth development is a
process by which all young people seek ways to meet their basic physical and social needs and to build
competencies (knowledge and skills) necessary to succeed in adolescence and adulthood (See pages 6-8
for youth development outcomes.).

Program Design and Outcomes
This Request for Proposal (RFP) seeks proposal in three main categories, described in detail later in this
document:

       Family Wellness

       Parenting
       School & Community Involvement

Trust funded Parent Center programs will utilize best practices and family engagement strategies that
have been proven to be effective in strengthening and empowering families and communities to foster
the optimal development of children, youth, and adult family members. Programs will be designed to
serve parents of young children and adolescents, and promote their use of a variety of public services
(educational, health, mental health, social services, recreational, etc) that support child and youth
development. Where applicable, programs will include a literacy building component for the
participating families; a health and wellness component for parents, guardians, caregivers and their
children; supports for parents, guardians and caregivers of children with special needs in accessing
appropriate public/private and community-based services; and work to increase family awareness of
age-appropriate learning behaviors for children. Programs are strongly encouraged to assist parents
with children in schools that are not meeting annual yearly progress, as outlined under No Child Left
Behind, with accessing supplemental education services.

Parent Center Program Outcomes
Applicants are asked to outline how their proposed program will address the outcomes listed below for
each category. For each program outcome, the proposal must provide two (2) indicators and one to two
(1-2) youth development outcomes that are as a result of attaining the program outcome.

Family Wellness: Programs providing services, opportunities, and supports to strengthen the abilities of
parents, guardians and caregivers to address issues of family functioning and environment, such as
managing stress, combating isolation, building family cohesion, and solving problems related to child

Youth Developmental Outcomes for Parent Centers
Trust funded Parent Center programs will be required to also connect youth development outcomes to
the outcomes of the parents. Programs will have to demonstrate how program activities promote the
youth development outcomes for the program participants’ children. The Trust has outlined youth
development outcome, based on the AYD curriculum, as OST program outcomes.

The youth development perspective begins with an emphasis on clearly defining youth outcomes, which
are the attitudes, knowledge, and behaviors that we want young people to achieve. All parents desire
successful developmental outcomes for their children. However, without knowing what developmental
outcomes are and how they are displayed and expressed by children and youth, it is impossible for
parents to apply intentional effective approaches to these outcomes.

Described below are the 12 developmental outcomes (6 outcomes reflect aspects of identity and 6
outcomes reflect aspects of ability), the knowledge areas, skills, and attributes, and behaviors, young
people need to be healthy, caring, and responsible youth and adults. Additionally, we have listed
indicators of developmental outcomes, which are the behaviors and actions of children & youth that
demonstrate that developmental outcomes have been met.

As you prepare your work plan, choose one to two (1-2) per Parent Center program outcome from the
12 youth developmental outcomes listed below and use the examples of indicators (what youth do…) as
a result of attaining the program outcome (See pages 4-6. ).

Granting Policies
Budget
Total budgets for proposed Parent Center programs must not exceed $2,500 per participant. The grant
period for these grants is October 1, 2009 through September 30, 2010.


Matching Funds
All applicants must provide matching funds for the proposed project equal to 20% of the amount of the
total project budget. (For example, an applicant proposing a program with a total budget of $125,000
could request $100,000 from the Trust, but must provide $25,000 in additional funds.) These matching
funds must be in place by October 1, 2009. Funding from D.C. Government agencies may not be used
for match. In-kind donations and services are not acceptable as matching funds.

Research and Evaluation
Grantees are required to participate in research and evaluation projects commissioned by the Trust, as
well as to develop and implement evaluation of their programs.


Participant Attendance
All programs funded under this RFP will receive funding based upon the outlined “per participant rate”
and grant amounts will reflect the proposed number to be served. Programs are required to initiate
contact with participating parents at least three times per month. One of the three monthly contacts
must be in person. Contacts include, but are not limited to, parent meetings, newsletters, workshops,
case management services, counseling sessions, classes, social activities, etc. The Trust’s MIS will be
used to collect data on participant enrollment and participation throughout the grant period, along with
site visits by our staff.

The Trust’s MIS will be used to collect data on participant enrollment and attendance throughout the
grant period, along with site visits by our staff. This data will be used to compile the average participant
attendance four times during the grant period, and the calculated number must be at least 75% of the
proposed number to be served. If the average participant attendance is less than 75% of the proposed
number to be served, then the grant amount will be reduced to reflect this. The reduced grant
advancement is calculated by taking the actual average participant attendance divided by .75 times the
per participant rate that is listed in the RFP and/or grant agreement times the next percentage
advancement.

Training and Program Development
Participation in DC BEST curriculum is required for all Parent Center programs. Each program will be
required to have:
     at least two (2) front-line/direct service workers complete the 30-hour AYD course;
     at least one (1) employee complete the AYD Supervisors course (15 hours); and

In addition, programs must participate in technical assistance to assist with meeting work plan goals and
organizational development.

Reporting Requirements
Grantees are required to maintain participant participation records in the Trust’s MIS. Monthly
expenditure reports and quarterly program reports are submitted through the Trust’s MIS, as is the final
report.

conflicts that affect the children, youth, and/or parents participating in the program must be received
within 24 hours, and written incident reports are required within five days of any unusual incident that
involves staff and/or participants.

Grantee Meetings and Networks
All grantees of the Trust are required to attend Grantee Meetings. These meetings provide important
information about compliance and accountability. They also provide technical assistance, dialogue with
city agencies and offices, interaction with the funding community and the opportunity to learn from
peers and colleagues. Affinity groups are formed each year to spur conversations and facilitate peer
learning on topics of interest to grantees such as program content, research and evaluation, policy and
advocacy, etc.

Fees for Programming
It is allowable to propose a program that serves both Trust-funded and non-Trust-funded participants.
Non-Trust-funded participants may be charged a fee for programming. Trust-funded participants may
NOT be charged a fee for program services, but can be charged a one-time nominal (e.g., less than $50)
program registration fee to encourage good attendance. However, if participants cannot afford the
registration fee, then they cannot be prevented from participating in Trust funded programming.

Disbursement of Grant Funds
The Trust will advance grant funds quarterly. The initial funding advance of 25% will be based on the
proposed number to be served. Subsequent payments will be disbursed quarterly based on average
participant attendance, approved progress towards work plan goals and completed program and
financial reports. A final 10% payment is made after all final reports are completed.

Program Safety Standards
Programs must offer a safe environment for program participants. Organizations will be required to
provide background checks for all staff and TB tests for staff. First-Aid/CPR-certified staff is required at
all sites. Programs will be required to provide an “Emergency Preparedness Plan” that deals with
threats of terrorism, “Code Red Days” when extreme heat causes program interruption, etc. and
includes a communications plan.

Work Plan Instructions
A work plan is like a road map. It helps you know where you are going, track your progress and lets you
know when you have arrived at your destination. Your Work Plan should include elements that are
SMART: Specific, Measurable, Achievable, Relevant, and Time-related.

What is the Program Outcome?
Definition: The overall goal for the parents, caregivers, and families that you serve. This is what your
programming is designed to help achieve. Outcomes should be linked to the youth development goals
listed on the pages 6-8 and related to the mission of your organization/program. Be as clear as you can
about what you intend to achieve during the grant year or other timeframe. Examples:
      School & Community Involvement – Parents will have a greater understanding of their children’s
         school performance.
      Parenting – Parents will increase positive communication with their children.
      Family Interests & Needs – Parents will participate in individual and group counseling

What are Program Activities?
Definition The services, supports, or opportunities that your program will offer parents and caregivers in
order to help them move closer to achieving the program outcome. For example: “x” amount of
homework help, special field trips, projects, employment, specific enrichment classes, workshops,
groups, trainings, etc. Examples:
     In individual meetings with parents, staff will review child’s report card, discuss parent-teacher
        conferences before and after parent attends, and answer questions.
     8 week workshop series on parent-child communication
     Individual and group counseling

What is the Target Population?
Definition: The specific number of children/youth/parents who will be engaged in the activities your
program offers. By participating in the activities, the target population will move closer to achieving the
“Program Outcome.” Include the target number you expect to serve. Examples:
     Parents of children ages 6 to 12 years old living in Ward 8, Cluster 38
     Parents of children attending DC Public Charter Academy in Ward 5
     Parents referred by DC Youth Center’s Truancy Program

What is Evidence of Change?
Definition : What the Target Population will have accomplished by the end of the grant period that will
tell you how close they have come to achieving the “Program Outcome.” What will you be able to see,
measure, or show that will indicate your programming is helping parents and caregivers meet the
outcome? Examples:
      School & Community Involvement – 30% of parents and caregivers report they are more
         prepared to attend parent-teacher conferences.
      Parenting – 80% of parents and caregivers report having held at least two family meetings
      Family Interests & Needs – 30% of parents and caregivers who report substance abuse issues
         upon initial interview will report a decrease in substance abuse.

Proposal Budget and Narrative Instructions
A Proposal Budget and Budget Narrative must be included in the proposal (See pages 25-26.). The
narrative includes an explanation for each of the budget line items. Information should be thorough
enough to allow an understanding of how requested budget amounts were derived.

Salaries and Wages
For each budget line, include the staff position title, the level of effort (e.g., 50% or 20 hours per week),
the duration of time that the position will be filled, and the base salary or wage rate for the position.
The grant will support salaries and wages for positions that are directly involved with program services
or management. Only the level of effort (percent of time or hours per week) spent by staff directly on
the program may be charged to the grant as a direct cost.
        Example:
        Management
                 Project Director 50% time for 12 months at $50,000                    $25,000
        Teachers/ Instructors
                 2 Instructors, 20 hours per week for 26 weeks at $15/hour             $15,600

Fringe Benefits
Include one line for fringe benefits as a percentage of the budget for salaries and wages. Indicate the
fringe rate percentage used. If for some reason a simple fringe rate cannot be applied, please explain
the method used to derive the budget for fringe benefits.
         Example:
         Fringe benefits
                 Total Salaries and Wages                                          $53,250
                 Fringe rate 16%
                 Fringe benefits ($53,250 * .16)                                   $ 8,520

Consultants/ professional fees
Include all contractual services, consultant fees, and professional fees paid to organizations and
individuals directly related to the grant.
        Example:
        Services to children/parents
                 Individual Consultant to provide arts program for students         $2,500
                 National Parent Center to provide 6 parent workshops               $4,000
        Technical assistance
                 Mgt. Support Co. to provide assistance on program planning         $5,000

Travel and Transportation
Include the amount budgeted as shown, such as bus rental, Metro or taxi fares, or other expenses
related to travel. Vehicle leases are considered by the Trust on a case-by-case basis, but should NOT be
included here; please include them under “Equipment.”
         Example:
        Field trips/ other youth travel
                 Bus rental for field trips,
                         2 trips per month for 12 months, $75 per trip            $1,800
        Staff travel

                         50 home visits per year, $3 per trip average               $ 150

Equipment
Equipment purchases and lease payments should be included here. These requests, especially large
purchases, will be scrutinized to ensure consistency with the scope of the grant. Only the portion of
equipment purchases directly used to carry out the scope of work of the grant may be included as a
direct cost. For example, computers for a student computer center or the Trust’s MIS reporting are
generally allowable as a direct cost, but computers for a central financial management system are
generally not allowable (or only partially allowable) as a direct cost. Similarly, vehicle purchases and
other large equipment purchases are rarely allowable as a full direct cost for this grant.
        Example:
        Computer equipment
                 3 computers for parent center, $1,500 per workstation               $4,500
                 1 router for parent center computer lab network                     $ 750
        Office equipment (non-computer)
                 Fax machine for program office                                      $ 125

Supplies
Include all supplies directly used for the children and youth served by the program or required for
program management. Food and Refreshments may be listed here.
        Example:
        Books, media, other learning materials
                 Purchase of curriculum, “Youth Entrepreneurship Training”        $2,100
                 20 business calculators, $25 per calculator                      $ 500
        General office supplies
                 General supplies for program management                          $1,200

Telecommunications
Include telecommunications costs that are directly related to the program:
        Example:
        Telephone
                Monthly telephone service for Parent Center,
                $50 per month for 12 months                                         $ 600
        Internet access
                Monthly internet access for Parent Center,
                $125 per month for 12 months                                        $1,500

Other Direct Costs
Include all other direct cost items in this category. Occupancy (rent, utilities, etc.) is often considered an
indirect cost but a portion of rent could be considered a direct cost under some circumstances, such as
the portion of rent devoted to the Parent Center. Be sure not to include here expenses that are indirect
costs and explain all items as in the examples above.

Indirect Costs
Indirect costs are allowed up to 10% of grant total. Please show the indirect cost rate used.
         Example:
         Indirect Cost
         Total Expenses                          $100,000

        Indirect cost rate of 10%
        Indirect Cost ($100,000 * .10)           $ 10,000

Direct versus Indirect Costs
The following definitions are provided as guidance in determining Direct Costs versus Indirect Costs:
     Direct costs are defined as costs incurred solely for program services or program administration.
     Indirect costs are costs that have been incurred for common general organizational objectives or
        activities and cannot be readily identified with the objectives of the grant. These include staff
        time, consultant time, or contractual services for general administration or other non-program
        activities; costs of occupancy or utilities; staff development or training not directly related to
        program administration; office supplies, furnishings, or equipment for general organizational
        use; telephone, postage, copying, internet, and other communications costs for general
        organizational use; or any other costs incurred for general organizational objectives or activities.
        Indirect costs must not exceed 10 % of the total budgeted for direct costs.

Matching Funds
All applicants must provide matching funds for the proposed program equal to 20% of the amount of
the total program budget. (For example, an applicant proposing a program with a total budget of
$125,000 could request $100,000 from the Trust, but must provide $25,000 in additional funds.) These
matching funds must be in place by October 1, 2009. Funding from D.C. Government agencies may not
be used for match. In-kind donations and services are not acceptable as matching funds. The “Program
Share” column of the FY10 Proposal Budget Form should indicate the amount the program will
contribute to the budgeted line item and the “Trust Share” should indicate the amount the program
requests from the Trust to contribute to the budgeted line item. The overall matching funds (“Program
Share”) for the proposed program must equal to 20% of the amount of the total program budget (See
pages 25-26.).

Matching funds may not include:
    Funds received from a District of Columbia government agency;
    Federal funds received by the organization that are passed through a DC government agency;
    Funds received from another organization that originated as a grant from a DC government
       agency;
    Co-payments from program participants for participation in the program or services received

Matching funds may include:
    Federal grant funds not passed through a DC agency;
    Support from foundations, corporations, or individuals;
    Funds from an organization’s general support funds or fiscal reserve;
    Funds raised through events, sales, corporate partnerships, or other enterprise activities.

For the program for which you are requesting support, list specific amounts of revenue requested from
foundations, corporations, and other funding sources for this proposal, as well as the status of those
requests (pending or committed) (See page 30 for the FY10 Projected Program Revenue Form). For
pending requests, please indicate the date you expect notification.
