Issaquah Community Network offers grants for young people

September 20, 2011

By Staff

Local programs to reduce homelessness and substance abuse among young people, as well as address other issues, qualify for grants from the Issaquah Community Network.

The organization is seeking funding proposals for projects during the 2011-12 fiscal year.

Leaders decided to focus on the following areas for grants:

Reduce youth substance abuse by increasing opportunities for positive social involvement.

Reduce youth homelessness by increasing information and support for local agencies helping homeless youths and families.

Reduce depression and risk of suicide by increasing education, detection, support and referrals.

Reduce adverse childhood experiences through training, public awareness, and support for healthy youths and families.

The organization supports local efforts to foster healthy youths and community. The most appropriate grant requests range from $200 to $2,000 due to limited funding.

The grant-funded services must be delivered within Issaquah School District boundaries. Eligible applicants must represent a nonprofit or government-funded organization, and meet the guidelines specified in the application form. The deadline for applications is Oct. 18.
