|Mini-grants Seek Applications in Colorado
Communities That Care (CTC) and the Chaffee County Youth Alliance (CCYA) will accept applications until Feb. 28 for mini-grants for community organizations serving youth within Chaffee County.
Grants of up to $1,500 may be awarded to support projects and programs focused on positive youth development and youth-community engagement, according to a press release.
“The CTC evidence-based model is guiding the Chaffee County Youth Alliance team to select and implement youth programs that are the best fit for our community,” Miki Hodge, Chaffee County facilitator, said in the release.
Other grant parameters are:
• The award date is set for March 5.
• The project implementation and grant expenditure deadline is June 30.
• Special youth-driven projects are encouraged. A youth voice component is required.
• A report demonstrating the use of funds and the impact must be submitted after the project completion.
Grant applications may be requested by emailing email@example.com or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Communities That Care is a collaborative program of Chaffee County Family & Youth Initiatives and Chaffee County Public Health.
It aims to help communities prevent youth risk problem behaviors before they develop, including delinquent behavior and alcohol, tobacco and drug use.
The system is funded by statewide excess marijuana tax collected in its first year of legalization in the form of marijuana education and prevention programs.
Application deadline is 2/28/18
