Grants ranging from $2,500 to $50,000 to Iowa, Nebraska, and South Dakota nonprofit organizations in the Sioux City Tri-State area for new or ongoing programs that improve the lives of local children and youth (ages 0 to 18). Specifically, grants must focus on one of the following areas:

- Poverty and its influence on children
- Health issues such as immunization rates and teen pregnancy
- Illiteracy and access to educational opportunities in the summer
- Parent involvement and its impact on children
- Food insecurity/lack of food

Priority will be given to programs that:

- Implement preventative strategies;
- Demonstrate the potential to break harmful intergenerational cycles and dependence on public systems by addressing underlying risk factors (e.g., poverty, substance abuse, teen pregnancy, illiteracy, health issues);
- Are based on sound research;
- Include quantitative and qualitative instruments to assess outcomes; and
- Use leverage (i.e. collaborate with other agencies and/or other dollars)
