Las Vegas, Nevada - The city of Las Vegas’ annual Youth Neighborhood Association Partnership Program (YNAPP) grant application process will be open Aug. 1-Oct. 31, 2018. YNAPP offers grants for up to $1,000 for youth to create and implement neighborhood-based service learning projects of their own design.
The program requires youth to match the city’s grant with cash, volunteer time or in-kind services and goods donated to the project. Projects are required to take place within city limits. YNAPP youth acquire skills in leadership and teamwork while contributing to their communities. Youth are project leaders and work toward ways to make positive changes in their neighborhoods. Youth participants ages 8-18 (from neighborhood associations, social organizations, religious groups, educational institutions, etc.) are eligible to apply for YNAPP funding. Application is made through Zoomgrants.com; details are available online here and at www.lasvegasnevada.gov/YDSI.
Applications will be reviewed by the YNAPP board, whose members are appointed by the City Council. Applicants will be required to make a 10-minute presentation to the YNAPP board in December. Funding recommendations will be presented to the City Council for final approval in January 2019.
