Investing in Youth Grants
Each year HCI funds many grassroots projects led by individuals or groups that help to advance one or more of the Collective Impact Benchmarks to ensure that all children thrive, from cradle to career.

All grant recipients must complete a final report at the conclusion of the event/activity. Failure to complete and return this form jeopardizes future funding.
What can the grant be used for?
Funds (up to $300) should be used to start new projects, not sustain recurring projects or an ongoing program. Ideally, funds should be used for projects that connect youth with each other and/or with the broader community.
Do I need to be part of an organization to apply?
No, you do not need to be part of a formal group to apply.
When can I apply?
Applications are accepted year-round. Each application is reviewed by board members and a decision on each application is usually determined within days. If you have any questions, or if you need help with an application, please contact Amy Lunderby, HCI Investing in Youth Grants Coordinator, at amy@
