A program is eligible as long as the program progresses in the skill-building and ends with the youth in the natural environment.
A small portion of the grant funding (up to10% of the total project) may be used for program staff salaries related directly to the funded program or project. The remainder of the grant monies should be used for the on-the-ground program needs rather than the operating or salary costs of the organization.
