Summary of the Grant Guidelines

Grant applications may be submitted twice a year by all non-profit and government agencies established as public charities serving Routt County youth with multiple risk factors, youth who have special needs, and/or youth who experience socio-economic marginalization, ages prenatal – 21 years old. YAP grant funding supports youth oriented programs and projects throughout the entire county, especially smaller agencies and schools in the most rural areas of the County where the need for proactive youth programs is often greatest. Most grants fall in the category of the “Standard Grant,” $1,000 to $15,000. The High Impact Grant of $16,000 – $20,000 is reserved for exceptional projects or youth programming. YAP provides on-site visits to the grantee agencies for the purposes of on-going agency support.
