Application forms for Youth Grants are now available from the Southwest Neighborhood Assembly’s Youth Activities Task Force. New user-friendly application forms, including budget forms, must be used. They can be picked up at the SW Library, K St. SW and Wesley Place SW (a block west of 3rd St. SW).
Typical grants to schools, churches, recreation centers, etc., have been between $200 and $800 for such things as sports uniforms and equipment, field trips, registration fees, books and refreshments. Besides helping other groups fund programs for youth, YATF runs programs with its own volunteers such as Computers for Kids, Safe Sitters, Photography Classes, Arts & Crafts Classes.
Groups asking for financial aid from the Task Force can submit requests to YATF-SWNA, P. O. Box 70131, Washington, D.C. 20024-0131. The Youth Activities Task Force (part of the Southwest Neighborhood Assembly) has been supporting programs for youth in this neighborhood since 1982, using funds from an annual mail solicitation to SW residents and funds from local grants.
