DIHEF Grant Process

Granting With Purpose

Our grant process has been developed to receive requests from community agencies, churches and individuals who are in need of funds and resources in order to conduct programs that build and establish youth programming.  These programs should benefit the needy and provide encouragement, leadership training, character building and promote good citizenship. We also encourage groups and agencies that mentor school age children; including disadvantaged girls in the field of life skills, to apply through our online grant process.  Additionally, we fund groups and agencies which provide educational mentoring services and programs in the field of study skills as well as conduct after school tutoring for school age children.

Applications are considered throughout the year.  We do not have submission deadlines.
