The Ripley Youth Outreach team is accepting applications for their Change Ripley County Grant. Applicants can apply for up to $10,000.00 for a youth-led project, in collaboration with a local nonprofit organization or a government/educational entity, to establish a change and improve Ripley County. Ripley Youth Outreach created the Change Ripley County Grant to give the youth a voice in the community, the confidence to take action, and the resources to make a change. This grant is only offered once every two years, so take this time to apply. All applications must be submitted virtually via the Ripley County Community Foundation website at www.rccfonline.org/grants/applications/ no later than June 1st. Five finalists will be selected to advance to a final review process where each one will give a pitch and answer any questions presented by the Ripley Youth Outreach executive committee.
