GRANTS AND AWARDS

National 4‑H Council grants and awards help young people learn, grow and make a difference in their communities.

Welcome to WebGrants

National 4 H Council grants give youth and adults the opportunity to take on issues critical to their lives, families, and communities. The grants are offered through land-grant universities to 4 H programs in local communities, counties, and states. The WebGrants online portal is a one-stop resource to access all available funding opportunities as well as submit related reporting.

Applications for funding are only accepted from 4 H/Extension professionals and state level Extension 4 H/Youth Development Program Leaders or LGU Administrators. Grant deadlines are determined in conjunction with our funding partners. Once a particular grant is announced, grant proposals are normally solicited for at least an eight-week period.

Grant proposal/application tips

When preparing a proposal/application, remember to:

  • Thoroughly read the entire RFP/RFA before you begin
  • Start preparing the proposal/application well before the deadline; waiting until the last minute often results in forgotten elements and simple errors that make the submission less likely to be funded
  • Review all program objectives and create a plan that you can implement that clearly addresses the stated objectives
  • Note the project implementation dates to ensure you will be able to meet all reporting and deliverable deadlines
  • Make sure your budget is suitable for accomplishing your plan, accurately reflects the allowable costs to fulfill grant requirements, and has been checked for math errors
  • Ensure that all necessary attachments are included and do not include attachments that are not requested
  • Allow enough time for review by your LGU sponsored programs office, if required.
  • Don’t forget, your state level Extension 4‑H/Youth Development Program leader or LGU administrator must have time to approve the proposal as well.

Please note that failure to adhere to all requirements may exclude
your proposal/application from consideration for the funding opportunity.
