The Youth Engaged in Philanthropy (YEP) committee is accepting grant applications for the 2014 YEP grant season.

YEP grants exist to improve the quality of life for youth in DeKalb County. Eligible projects serve a youth-led initiative that directly involves DeKalb County youth in its development and implementation. Applicants may request a maximum of $2,500 and are required to present their proposal to the YEP committee through a site visit or presentation. Nonprofits with youth initiatives in DeKalb County are encouraged to apply.

Grant applications will be accepted at www.dekalbccf.org through Feb. 1. No hard copy applications will be accepted.

For more information or to inquire about an application, contact Becky Zantout at 815-748-5383 or becky@dekalbccf.org and visit www.dekalbccf.org.
