If you’re thinking about applying for the Youth and the Environment funding, then you won’t want to miss our Twitter Chat. Join us Tuesday, May 8, 2018 at Noon EDT and let our Program Director, Karen Shelstad, share her knowledge about the funding stream and how to submit a strong application. She will be taking live questions, and answering some questions we regularly receive about applications.

She’ll also answer questions about grant results, priority outcomes, the types of costs funded, and we’ll review the top reasons why applications are declined. We’re here to answer your questions, and help you submit a strong application.
