Applications are now available for two Columbia Basin Trust (CBT) programs: the Social Grants Program and the Youth Grants Program. The deadline for both is April 12.
The Social Grants Program funds projects that primarily support social well-being and address social issues in Basin communities. The Youth Grants Program funds projects that primarily impact and benefit Basin youth aged 12 to 29.
“The Social Grants Program aims to help organizations tackle diverse social issues across the region, and we look forward to seeing what projects come forward in this second intake of the program,” said Aimee Ambrosone, CBT Senior Manager, Sector Initiatives. “The Youth Grants Program is continuing on the success it has had over the last seven years, supporting a range of projects that involve youth and build youth capacity and leadership.”
Granting decisions for the Social Grants Program are made by a volunteer group of Basin residents who have experience and expertise in the social sector and broader community development experience. For more information on the program, visit www.cbt.org/sgp.
Applications to the Youth Grants Program are adjudicated by CBT’s Youth Advisory Committee, a group composed of Basin residents aged 15 to 29 who provide a youth perspective and understanding of the needs of and challenges facing young people in the Basin. For more information on the program, visit www.cbt.org/ygp.
Organizations looking for assistance in applying or those organizations that are uncertain about which program to apply to should contact CBT at 1.800.505.8998 or [email protected]. The next intake for both programs will be in fall 2013.
CBT supports efforts to deliver social, economic and environmental benefits to the residents of the Columbia Basin. To learn more about CBT programs and initiatives, visit www.cbt.org or call 1-800-505-8998.
