FPWA strengthens member agencies and other human services providers by helping to build their operations and meet the needs of their communities. We do this by providing important capacity- and partnership building services as well as training and grants.
FPWA awards program grants on an annual basis to three member agencies to support new direct service projects that are linked to FPWA’s advocacy agenda. Grants must address emerging social service issues or needs that the agency has identified. *Only FPWA 501(c)(3) members located in the NY metro area are eligible to apply.

FPWA operates a number of programs that provide its member agencies with the support needed to help improve the lives of their clients and communities.
FPWA offers member agencies that operate day or sleep-away camps the opportunity to apply for camp scholarships. Once granted, each agency is responsible for deciding how to allocate those funds to the applicants of their camp.
FPWA provides member agencies with opportunities for their youth to apply for college scholarships. Each agency can refer up to two students entering their junior year and up to two students entering their senior year, for a total of four referrals per agency.
FPWA’s Senior Stipend program provides ongoing financial assistance to New York City residents ages 66 and up who meet certain criteria and who are receiving case management. This program enables participants to remain in their homes and to have support and access to services from licensed social workers.
