Please use the new mini-grant application to submit your request. 

If you have any questions, please feel free to contact us at: 760-863-2333 or via e-mail:

Mini-Grants are awarded to individuals, schools or organizations who are in need of funding towards a youth oriented activity, event, or even to purchase necessary materials/equipment to provide a service to the youth, for example, microphones for a school performance, etc. 

Mini-Grants are awarded for up to $1,500

An itemized budget must accompany all mini-grant applications.

If you are awarded, you will be asked to provide CVCT with pictures of your event for them to be shown on the CVCT website. 

Recipients will also be asked to attend a membership meeting to talk about how the funding was used to support your organization/event. 

We look forward to reviewing your applications. Best of Luck!
