Grant Description
Grants of up to $2,500 to Michigan nonprofit organizations, government agencies, IHEs, and schools in eligible locations for programs and projects that address the needs of local youth under the age of 18. Special consideration will be given to proposals requiring seed money for new, dynamic projects that show funding support from additional organizations. Applicants must be located in Iosco County.

Highest priority will be given to projects or programs addressing the following youth needs as determined by the tri-annual needs assessment survey (for Youth Needs Assessment Results, see Supporting Documents below):

  1. Stress Issues
  2. Mental Health Issues
    • Depression
    • Vaping
    • Body Image/Appearance Issues


    • Others (see text field entitled "Additional Eligibility Criteria" for clarification)

    Additional Eligibility Criteria
    - Your organization must be recognized as a non-profit charitable organization under section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Service code. (Schools and government agencies are also eligible. Grants to religious organizations will be considered only if they serve the general public and do not have religious overtones of a sectarian nature.) Proof of non-profit status is required for auditing purposes.
    - A representative from your organization will be required to make a brief presentation to the YAC members. You will be notified of the date and location after your proposal has been submitted.

    - No grants are made to individuals.
    - Grants are made for future projects only. No funding will be given for projects completed before final board approval.
    - Grants are not made for routine operating needs or budget deficits.
    - If your program has been funded either two consecutive years or two consecutive grant cycles, you are not eligible to apply for this program.
