Grants available for Fayette County underserved youth programs

Deadline to apply Jan. 28

LEXINGTON, Ky. (Jan. 6, 2016) — Partners for Youth is accepting applications for its grassroots grants program that awards money to Fayette County programs that provide positive youth programming opportunities to young people. The program is designed to assist small, hands-on grassroots programs that aid an underserved population and is not a source for large grants. Grants typically range from $750 to $3,000.

partners for youthProposals must be typed and emailed to [email protected] by 5 p.m., on Jan. 28. Only one proposal per organization may be submitted. Applications can be downloaded at www.partners4youth.org.

For those that need help filling out paperwork, a technical assistance meeting will be held from 4-5 p.m. on Jan. 11. To register call 258-3119. (Location will be provided upon registration.)

In addition to the application, eligible applicants are required to meet with members of the Partners for Youth Grassroots Allocation Review Committee to discuss the proposal. Meetings will be scheduled in late February or early March and failure to attend will result in elimination from 2016 funding.

Selection will be determined by the grant review committee, the Grassroots Committee and the Partners for Youth Board of Directors. Additional points will be rewarded to programs who attend the technical assistance training on Jan. 11, programs that take place during “out of school time” (i.e., summer, weekends and after school) and programs that have not received funding in the past. Please Note: A specific program cannot be awarded grant funds with both Partners for Youth and LFUCG Social Services ESR funds for the same program.
