Pre-Application Information:

Next Application Deadline: September 20, 2021 at 11:59 p.m.

Applicants are encouraged to contact the office prior to applying to confirm funding for specific projects.

Grant requests are reviewed by the Grants Committee. Recipients will receive an award letter. Should you not receive an award letter by mail, please assume that your request was not awarded a grant. Please do not contact the office regarding the status of your grant.

YCF will review each request, match it to funds with a purpose able to fulfill the requests, and send it off to the committees of those funds to review. If awarded a grant, requests may be fully funded, partially funded, or funded through a combination of YCF funds.

Once an application is accepted, re-application can occur on a year to year basis. If an application has not been accepted please contact the YCF office for guidance toward re-applying in the next grant cycle.
