Youth Grants



Youth groups or organizations in Lenawee County may apply for grants up to $2,000 for local projects. The Lenawee YOUTH Council, a program of the Lenawee Community Foundation will offer the grants.


Youth Grant applications are available annually by March 1st and typically due by April 1st.  All grants are based on building Youth Assets, as defined by the Search Institute.

Youth Asset Survey:

Search Institute’s framework of developmental assets provides a tool for assessing the health and well-being of middle and high school-age youth.  The asset framework represents a common core of developmental building blocks (assets) crucial for all youth.  The national percentages of young people who report experiencing each asset were gathered from the Search Institute Profiles of Student Life: Attitudes and Behaviors survey in 318 communities and 33 states.  Lenawee statistics were documented by surveying over 2,000 seventh, ninth, and eleventh-grade students throughout Lenawee County.
