Investing in Youth Grants

Do you miss hanging out with your friends? Would a grant help you get together under current safety guidelines? HCI wants to support your ideas for positive social activities, events or projects during this time of physical distancing.

Northfield area youth (and adults) are encouraged to apply for an HCI Investing in Youth grant to support creative projects or healthy activities that connect youth during the COVID-19 pandemic. Examples of already funded projects include a four-session drawing workshop for middle and high school students via Zoom; and a jump rope club (and free jump ropes) for elementary students, taught by high school students via YouTube. Grants of up to $300 are available (Note: expensive equipment will not be funded).

The grant application form is short, and so is the turn-around time. Your idea could receive funding of up to $300 within a day or two.
