By Submitted March 13, 2013 03:17 pm

Wild Rivers Community Foundation has announced the 2013 Summer Youth Mini-Grant Program. Through partnerships, grants are available to help support summer programs serving children in Del Norte and Curry counties.

 Grants averaging approximately $500 will be awarded to groups/organizations providing summer programs for Del Norte and Curry County youths from June 1 to Sept. 1. Funds can be used for a variety of program costs: arts and crafts supplies, sports or recreational equipment, field trips, special events or providing scholarships for children who would not otherwise be able to participate.

 Last year, 1,647 children and youths in 23 organizations through partnerships were supported in having healthy and safe summer activities around Curry and Del Norte counties.

The deadline for applications to be delivered or postmarked is April 1. Digital versions of the application can be found at www.wildriverscf.org. 

The Wild Rivers Community Foundation Board will evaluate proposals and make award announcements at a reception May 1.
