Partners for Youth accepting grant applications

Partners for Youth is accepting applications for its grassroots grants program. The grants award money to programs in Fayette County that provide youth programming opportunities. The grants range from $750 to $3,000 and are designed to assist small, hands-on grassroots programs that aid an underserved population.

Applications can be downloaded at Partners4youth.org. The proposal must be typed and emailed to lhatfield@lexingtonky.gov by 5 p.m. Jan. 28. Only one proposal per organization may be submitted.

In addition to the application, 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 funding.
