4-H Staff Only: Iowa 4-H Program Grants

The Iowa 4-H Foundation is proud to offer grant support for 4-H Programs across the state.

Grant Cycles & Awards
The Iowa 4-H Foundation will review and award grant funds twice a year.

Spring: The Spring Grant Cycle applications will be due April 1. These applications should be for projects and programs which will take place in the upcoming fiscal year (July 1 or after). They will be reviewed by the Iowa 4-H Foundation Program Committee with funding recommendations made at the April meeting of the Iowa 4-H Foundation. Funding will be received July 15.

Fall: The Fall Grant Cycle applications will be due September 15. These applications should be for projects and programs which will take place in the current fiscal year (prior to June 30). They will be reviewed by the Iowa 4-H Foundation Program Committee with funding recommendations made at the October meeting of the Iowa 4-H Foundation. Funding will be received January 15.

Requirements
Each submission must include an application form and a project budget outlining total costs for the program and which portion of those costs Foundation funding would cover. Proposals that have been funded previously should complete the renewal application form.

Each application must be approved by the appropriate program specialist and the State 4-H Program Leader before submission to the Foundation.

Eligibility
All 4-H staff are eligible to submit grant requests. County 4-H staff must have their application approved by the Youth Program Specialist serving their county. Requests may be for state, regional or county programming; for on-going needs, event or camp support. Local projects are encouraged to also seek support from their local county endowments.

Reporting
All applications receiving funding will be required to complete a Grant Evaluation Form. This evaluation is due one year from the grant award: Spring applicants should submit their evaluation by March 15 the following year, Fall applicants should submit their evaluation by September 15 the following year. Renewal applications will not be considered unless the evaluation has been submitted.
