Additional Funding Now Available for 2022-2023 YSA Lead Agency Grants – Jul 15

Posted by Youth Service America on June 28, 2022

Additional funding is now available for YSA Lead Agency grants, so we’re reopening the application to award between 16 to 32 more grants to support meaningful youth-led volunteerism and civic participation – especially for middle and high school-aged students and young people from underserved communities – on National Days of Service.

The 2022-2023 YSA Lead Agency program supports local nonprofit organizations, K-12 schools, colleges, and universities, youth development programs, faith-based organizations, and government agencies that lead partner coalitions or project organizers engaging youth during the following National Days of Service:

  • 9/11 Day of Service & Remembrance (September 11, 2022)
  • MLK Day of Service (January 16, 2023)
  • Global Youth Service Day (April 28-30, 2023)

Grants of $3,000 or $6,000 will be awarded based on the number of youth volunteers engaged. The primary role of a Lead Agency is to convene and train a coalition of partners or project organizers who will collectively engage youth ages 5-25 on National Days of Service.

Applicants may work locally, regionally, statewide, or in multiple states and must be based in the United States. We are especially interested in applications from organizations in the following states: Alaska, Arizona, Arkansas, Colorado, Connecticut, DC, Delaware, Georgia, Hawaii, Idaho, Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Kansas, Kentucky, Maine, Mississippi, Missouri, Montana, Nevada, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New Mexico, North Dakota, Oregon, Rhode Island, South Carolina, South Dakota, Tennessee, Utah, Vermont, Virginia, Washington, West Virginia, Wisconsin, and Wyoming.

These grants are made possible through funding from the Charles Stewart Mott Foundation, AmeriCorps. The application deadline is Friday, July 15, 2022.
