$5,500 Grants Available for Native Youth Programs Completing Brief Survey

June 8, 2018

LONGMONT, Colorado (June 8, 2018) – First Nations Development Institute (First Nations), today launched a national survey to collect information about the overall landscape of organizations and entities serving Native American youth. When completed, the survey findings will contribute to available knowledge about the types of programming and services available for Native American youth, and the funding realities and capacity needs for entities serving this group.

The short 5 to 7-minute survey can be found at this link. Any organizations that serve or used to serve Native American youth are encouraged to take the brief survey.

Ten survey respondents will be selected to receive a $5,500 general support grant, participate in follow-up phone interviews and be awarded travel scholarships to attend a convening held in conjunction with the 2018 First Nations L.E.A.D. Institute Conference in September at the Morongo Casino and Resort in Cabazon (Palm Springs), California.

The deadline for completing the online survey to be considered for the $5,500 grant is Friday, July 6, 2018.

Use of Survey Data

The information collected from the survey will be disseminated in a report summarizing the landscape of Native youth serving organizations with recommendations on how grantmakers, policymakers, tribes, communities and other stakeholders can most effectively support the success of groups that serve Native American youth. All survey information is confidential and will only be presented in an aggregated fashion so that individual respondents will not be identifiable.
