New York State Department of Health
The Displaced Healthcare Workers Program will allow employees affected
by the recommendations of the Berger Commission or other economic
factors or trends to receive the necessary job placement, counseling and
short-term training necessary to be rehired into the health care system or
into other comparable jobs. The program is targeted at workers in less-skilled
positions, such as service, clerical, maintenance and security jobs. Unlike
their co-workers who are in short supply for posts such as clinical, technical
and other patient care areas, these employees are expected to have less access
to reemployment opportunities without additional assistance and short-term training.
New York State Education Department
The State Education Department is providing funding for grants for the costs of providing
college or university-based summer training for teachers necessary to implement rigorous
pre-engineering curricula in the middle and high school levels.
New York State Education Department
The New York State Education Department, State Archives, has announced the availability of grants
from the Local Government Records Management Improvement Fund to improve records management
and archival administration in New York State’s local governments. Grants are available for inventory
and planning, active records, inactive records, historical records, and educational uses of local
government records projects.
. . . Foundations and Organizations
Ameriquest Mortgage Company
This grant program encourages young people to develop projects to improve their after-school
program and neighborhood.
Women’s Sports Foundation
These awards are designed to get girls to increase exercise and physical activity by inspiring teams to
help fight the physical and psychological health risks affecting America’s inactive youth. Teams must
lead their own team project that will get girls in their communities physically active and submit a detailed
essay or a VHS, DVD or CD-ROM telling about the projects.
The Allstate Foundation
Allstate has partnered with the National Network to End Domestic Violence (NNEDV) Fund to establish
the Education and Job Training Assistance Fund. The fund channels small grants to survivors of domestic
violence in order to achieve their educational and job-related goals. The fund is intended to help survivors
achieve greater independence over their financial lives as well as establish options for themselves in the
future. The fund supports career-advancement activities such as professional licenses, workforce tools,
and additional job training. Examples include licensing fees; books and supplies for school; job skills
training; tuition; requirements for jobs; registration fees; temporary child care so that the applicant can
attend school, take a class, or look for employment; public transportation; and rental fees for computer
time at a computer center.
The Getty Foundation
This program assists colleges and universities to manage and preserve the integrity of their significant
historic buildings, sites, and landscapes.
This program supports organizations that share the company’s philosophy of community service
worldwide in areas such as science and technology, education, global public health, the environment,
youth advocacy, and the arts.
The Jerome Foundation makes grants to support the creation and production of new artistic works
by emerging artists living in the five boroughs of New York City. Funds support periods of travel for
the purpose of study, exploration and growth. The program supports such activities as research
leading to the creation of new work, the development of collaborations, participation in specific
training programs, time for reflection and individualized study, investigating artistic work outside
New York City, and dialogue on aesthetic issues.
