YAC Grants at our Community Foundation

The Youth Action Committee (YAC) awards about $40,000 in grants annually from the Youth Fund at our Community Foundation.

YAC likes to fund programs that encourage and support the development of youth assets and that address youth issues. Current priority areas, as identified by the 2015 Youth Needs Assessment Survey, are programs and initiatives that address coping with stress and anxiety, paying for college, and mental health support. More detailed information can be found below in the YAC grant guidelines document.
