The Youth Neighborhood Association Partnership Program (YNAPP) offers grants of $1,000 for youth to create and implement neighborhood based service learning projects of their own design.
Youth are project leaders and work toward ways to make positive changes in their neighborhoods. Youth participants between ages of 8 and 18 (from neighborhood associations, social organizations, religious groups, educational institutions, etc.) are eligible to apply for YNAPP funding.
Sample projects, include but are not limited to: developing care packages; youth art/mural projects; reading projects; services for the homeless; repairing and refurbishing donated books to give to senior centers; and providing home maintenance services to disabled seniors.
There is an annual application process and the appointed YNAPP Grant Review Board reviews all applications. Technical assistance is provided to grant recipients by city staff, and monthly project reports are required until project completion. Grant recipients are required to sign a contract with the city of Las Vegas, outlining the group's project commitment.
The 2019-2020 application period is now open and will close on Oct. 31, 2019. See the flier.
Applicants are encouraged to attend the YNAPP Applicant Workshop scheduled for Wednesday, Sept. 25, 2019, at 5 p.m. in the fifth-floor large conference room at City Hall, located at 495 S. Main St.
