Grant Categories

The Standard Grant is the more common grant of $5,000 – $15,000. If you are applying for general operating funds, you must apply within the Standard Grant category. The High Impact Grant of $18,000 – $23,000 is reserved for exceptional, meaningful projects or youth programming. When applying for a High Impact Grant, be aware that if the Grant Review Committee concludes the application does not merit the minimum $18,000 award, the applicant will not receive any funding during this grant cycle. Refer to Grant Guidelines for more information.

Submitting your YAP Grant Application

The application must be received by CSFF no later than 5:00 p.m. on the grant deadline. The deadline for spring grant applications is March 1st. The deadline for fall grant applications is November 1st.

We would like to make applying for a grant as simple as possible, so we are introducing a new online application process. Please scroll down and create an account or sign in to get started. Note that if you created an account before 2019, you will need to create a new one now. You will then be guided through the grant application form. After submitting, please give us your feedback so we can continue to improve the online application process.

We have worked hard to ensure that the online application form is reliable and easy to use, and we hope you’ll try it out. However, if you run into trouble you can still download an off-line version of the application form to fill out electronically or by hand. Click here to download the form for filling out off-line.


Applicants will be notified by mail within one month of the grant application deadline.
