Application Process For City Of Las Vegas Youth Neighborhood Association Partners Program Grants Now Open
Applicants Encouraged To Attend Grant Workshop Sept. 23

 

The city of Las Vegas’ annual Youth Neighborhood Association Partners Program (YNAPP) grant application process is open now through Nov. 19, 2014. 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 in city limits. Applications and details are available online.

Applicants are encouraged to attend the workshop scheduled for Tuesday, Sept. 23, from 5:30 to 6:30 p.m. in the fifth-floor large conference room at City Hall, located at 495 S. Main St. To register for the workshop, call 702-229-5406 or e-mail lcampbell@lasvegasnevada.gov.

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 January. Funding recommendations will be presented to the City Council for final approval in February 2015.
