My Brother's Keeper Challenge Grant
The purpose of the My Brother's Keeper Challenge Grant is to incentivize and support school districts to develop and execute coherent cradle-to-college strategies aimed at improving the life outcomes for boys and young men of color.
The MBK Challenge Grant Program is designed to encourage regions and school districts to develop and execute coherent cradle-to-career college strategies that are aimed at improving the life outcomes for boys and young men of color and develop and sustain effective relationships with families toward the goal of success for all students. In 2016, NYSED awarded $7 million in grants to 40 school districts with an annual distribution for 3 years to work with community-based organizations and other groups to improve family engagement efforts in local communities.
