SUBJECT:	Fiscal Year 2000 Children, Youth, and Families at Risk
Request For Applications

The Cooperative State Research, Education, and Extension Service
(CSREES), USDA, announces the Children, Youth, and Families at Risk
(CYFAR) funding program to support community-based programs serving
children, youth, and families in at-risk environments. CYFAR funds are
intended to support the development of high quality, effective
research-based programs, and to document impact of these programs on
intended audiences.

CSREES funds CYFAR programs to accomplish the mission of the CYFAR
funding program "to marshal resources of the Land-Grant and Cooperative
Extension System to develop and deliver educational programs that equip
limited resource families and youth who are at risk for not meeting
basic human needs, to lead positive, productive, contributing lives."

CSREES funds State Strengthening and New Communities Projects for two
distinct objectives - to improve statewide capacity to support
community-based programs for children, youth, and families at risk and
to improve the quality and quantity of comprehensive community-based
programs for children, youth, and families at risk.

Only 1862 Land-Grant University Cooperative Extension Services are
eligible to apply for CYFAR funding.  In fiscal year (FY) 2000, CSREES
will accept applications for Renewal State Strengthening Projects from
States initially funded in fiscal years 1996, 1997, 1998, and 1999;
applications for New State Strengthening Projects from States which do
not currently have State Strengthening Projects; and applications for
New Communities Projects from States having completed five years of
State Strengthening funding by October 1, 1999.  The 1862 Universities
are urged to partner with 1890, 1994, and Hispanic-serving Universities.
CSREES will accept only one State Strengthening and New Communities
Project application from each State.

Contingent upon the FY 2000 appropriation from Congress, CSREES intends
to fund new CYFAR projects for up to five years.  State Strengthening
Projects are awarded $150,000 per year with additional monies in the
initial year for computers and internet connectivity for the community
program sites and the new Communities Projects are awarded $125,000 per
year for programmatic costs including computer and internet
connectivity.  Renewal funding will be awarded to eligible CYFERNet lead
universities and the National Network for Health.

The CYFAR program provides a variety of support and technical assistance
to State Strengthening and New Communities Projects through the
Children, Youth, and Family Network (CYFERNet), CYFAR Liaisons, and the
CYFAR 2000 Conference.  Information about all of these services is
available on the CYFAR homepage:

FY 2000 CYFAR Applications are due to CSREES on December 3, 1999.  The
Request for Applications can be accessed through the CYFAR homepage.  Go
to http://www.reeusda.gov/4h/cyfar/cyfar.htm and then to the RFA button.
Complete applications will be reviewed by panels of recognized
specialists in children, youth and family program areas.  Awards for
renewal State Strengthening Projects will be announced by March 31, 2000
and for new State Strengthening Projects and New Communities Projects by
April 28, 2000.
