Pre-Application Information:

2022 Deadline:
The deadline to apply is Thursday, September 1 by 11:45pm.

- Each application is read and reviewed by members of the Community Foundation Youth Advisory Council (YAC)
- YAC Members in each county meet in October/November for a County Grantmaking Meeting to review and discuss the grant applications, and recommend how grant funds in their county should be awarded. Grant applicants may be required to have a representative give a short presentation at the Grantmaking meeting in each of the counties to which they are applying.
- Recommendations for funding are brought to the Foundation's Board of Directors in early December for final approval. Following this, all applicants will be notified of the decisions and grant funds are anticipated to be disbursed by mid-December.

Important Note: If you are applying for a grant in more than one county for the same program, you do not need to submit more than one application. If you are providing the same program, but it differs in cost, implementation or population served, or plan to provide a completely different program in each county, a separate grant application would be required for each county.
