DHS Making Mini-Grants Available to Non-Profit Summer Camps

Mini-grants that will facilitate summer camps for 2010 are now available for non-profit organizations through the Virgin Islands Department of Human Services. Total funding available for this project is $200,000. The practical budget range is $1,000 to $5,000 per applicant through Monday, June 28. The main objective is to support non-profit organizations that provide activities during summer vacation that will give at-risk youth an opportunity to gain new learning or culturally enriching experiences that otherwise would not be economically available to them.

Applications for the mini-grants are available at: vinonprofitorganizations@yahoogroups.com; the DHS Commissioner’s Office, 1303 Hospital Ground, Knud Hansen Complex, Building A, St. Thomas, VI 00802 (Call: 774-1166), and the DHS Commissioner’s Office Golden Rock, St. Croix, VI 00820 (Call: 718-2983). The final day to return receipts is Sept. 10.
Completed applications must be e-mailed to: vinonprofitmanagement@yahoogroups.com. Additionally, one original must be received by DHS Offices on either St. Thomas or St. Croix (addresses are given above) no later than 4 p.m. on Monday, June 28.
For additional information, call Clarrisa Warrington at 774-0930 ext. 4103.
