The Tulare County Youth Commission is accepting applications for its Step Up
Youth Activities Grant Program. Authorized by the Tulare County Board of
Supervisors earlier this year, the grant program provides $100,000 in grants
for local non profit organizations. Any organization that operates within
Tulare County that has 501 (c) 3 tax status is eligible to apply.
In May of 2008, the Tulare County Board of Supervisors established the Step Up
Youth Activities Grant Program and the Tulare County Youth Commission, which
will administer the grant program. The Step Up Youth Activities Grant program
allocates $100,000 for grants to Tulare County non profit organizations. There
is $20,000 available for each Supervisorial district, and grant award amounts
will range between $2,000 and $10,000.
The Tulare County Youth Commission will review the submitted grant applications
and recommend to the Board of Supervisors which organizations should receive
funding and at what level(s). The Tulare County Board of Supervisors will make
the final funding decision.
IMPORTANT NOTE: Before making its funding recommendations, the Tulare County
Youth Commission will host a mandatory grant workshop for all applicants at 2
p.m. on Wednesday, September 24 in the Board of Supervisors chambers located at
2800 W. Burrel Ave. in Visalia.
