It’s been a pretty hard year and a half for children all over the world. So, as kids began to return to school, whether fully in-person or in a hybrid classroom setting, it is important they get the attention they need.
Between changes in educational settings, the stress of a global pandemic, and navigating through physical and emotional growth, many children are in need of resources that could help. Grants are one resource that can provide children and organizations for youth with the added support they need to ensure success.
GrantWatch has categories dedicated to grants for children and grants for youth. Currently, there are over a thousand grants available, with new grants added each weekday. In light of the stress the pandemic has put on children, GrantNews has decided to share a list of seven of these grants that could help.
Helping Children Succeed with Seven Grants
- There are grants available for U.S. nonprofits for research projects related to children’s welfare and parenting. Funding is for programs that specifically benefit infants and children.
- Grants of up to $1,000 to U.S. students ages 18 and under for service projects to benefit their local community. Funding may be to support a variety of creative projects. These can include playgrounds, nature trails, animal shelters, school and community gardens, face mask donations, programs for seniors, and more.
