Grants to California and Oregon nonprofit organizations for seasonal programming for local youth in eligible counties. Priority will be given to programs serving disadvantaged or at-risk youth or youth in outlying areas, as well as programs serving high numbers of participants or whose operating hours are extensive. Funding is intended to meet the needs of valuable summer programs in Humboldt, Del Norte, and Curry County.

The committee will consider each application and prioritize funding based on the following criteria:

  • Program serves a high number of low-income, disabled or otherwise disadvantaged youth,
  • Program serves youth in an outlying area with few summer alternatives for productive activities,
  • Program operating hours are extensive throughout the summer (i.e. every week-day all summer),
  • Program serves extremely high numbers of youth,
  • Program serves an at-risk youth population,
  • Programs that provide camperships / scholarships,
  • Programs that have multiple funding sources

The committee may also award additional funding to:

  • Organizations that provide a large number of scholarships to their Summer Program,
  • Organizations that have a Summer Program that requires no fee,
  • Organizations that make good use of available resources and/or collaboration,
  • Organizations with programs that provide developmental and not just recreational opportunities,
  • Organizations that request items to help ensure the safety of their program's participants.

Programs must meet the guidelines and restrictions provided by the California or Oregon Department of Health to prevent the spread of COVID-19.
