Youth Services Grant Program



The City of Urbana announces the availability of funding for grants to public or private not-for-profit agencies to provide community-based services for children and youth from low-income families.

Through this grant opportunity, the City of Urbana seeks to fund programs that meet the documented needs of Urbana children and youth from early childhood (Kindergarten, Pre-K) through 22 years of age. Proposals should target those from low-income families with the goal of having a lasting impact on the community. This grant opportunity focuses on three key service areas:

  • Health (Healthcare, mental health resources, trauma support)
  • Wellness (Violence prevention, recreation, after school programs, educational programming, mentoring)
  • Opportunity (Workforce development, job training)

Applications must be completed and submitted through our Neighborly online grant portal. To get started, please login to an existing account, or create a new account here.
