Operation: Military Kids (OMK) Local/Regional Network (L/RSN) expansion Grants are intended to support community efforts to address specific changes in the lives of military youth and families, in particular, changes related to an increase in the connections Military youth have during the deployment of a loved one. These connections can be directly related to formal support networks (programs that agencies, organizations, and institutions develop and implement), or informal support networks (friends, peers, neighbors, and family members that have either occasional or regular contact with youth). Applications that focus on the development and sustainment of an OMK Local/Regional Support Network (both formal and informal networks, and in particular building formal networks and supporting informal networks) are preferred.
The identified OMK Local/Regional Support Network must be integrated into the existing OMK state initiative and either enhance or expand support to these Military Kids. The efforts of this OMK Local/Regional Support Network must focus on filling gaps and eliminating duplication of service.
