CBT grants support youth

The Columbia Basin Trust is making $150,000 available for projects that benefit Basin youth through two granting programs.

The Columbia Basin Trust is making $150,000 available for projects that benefit Basin youth through two granting programs (Columbia Basin Youth Grants and Youth Action Grants).

“We confirmed in our 2011-2015 Youth Initiatives Strategic Plan that we wanted to continue to support a range of opportunities that allow youth to engage with their communities and one another,” said Sabrina Curtis, CBT director of sector initiatives. “These two granting programs will make funds available for more youth projects.”

The Columbia Basin Youth Grants (CBYG) funds projects that directly benefit Basin youth ages 12 to 29 for up to $15,000. Registered non-profit organizations, school districts, First Nations organizations can apply.

The next deadline for CBYK is Dec. 17. For application forms and guidelines visit www.cbt.org/cbyg.

The Youth Action Grants (YAG) are for youth ages 12 to 19. Youth can apply for up to $3,000 for projects that demonstrate youth-led action with positive outcomes. There will be monthly intakes on the first of every month.

For application forms and guidelines on YAG visit www.cbt.org/yag.

Applications to both programs are adjudicated by CBT’s Youth Advisory Committee, a group of youth from around the Basin whose involvement further promotes the active engagement of youth in regional decision-making processes.
