• Grants & Awards

  • National 4-H Council grants give young people and adults the opportunity to take on issues critical to their lives, families, and communities. Youth and adults work together to design the project, write the proposal, and evaluate funded projects. The grants are offered to 4-H programs in local communities, in counties, and on the state level.

    Grant deadlines are determined in conjunction with our funding partners. Once a particular grant is announced, grant proposals are normally solicited for a four- to eight-week period. Please note that grants are awarded to 4-H Extension groups, not to individuals.
