    The Pima County Health Department is making funding available to award up to eight mini-grants to local organizations or groups that serve youth.

    The new initiative, New Pathways to Health and Well-being for Youth, aims to better understand the experiences of youth through the COVID-19 pandemic, while focusing on youth-driven solutions to promote young people’s health, mental health and well-being, aspirations, and community participation.

    “Young people, especially pre-teens, teens, and young adults, have been navigating many challenges during the pandemic, just as adults have,” said Eddie Diaz, program manager at the Health Department.

    “But this has come at a critical time of their emotional, social, and personal development. These mini-grants will give organizations that serve youth opportunities to deepen their work and engage young people from all walks of life across the County in ways that help them be heard, seen, and understood.”

    The funding for the mini-grants comes from federal grants from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Each mini-grant proposal may be funded for approximately $10,000.

    Successful applicants need to be able to begin their proposed activities by July 1, 2022, and provide a final report on activities by Sept. 30, 2022. Applications are due by May 31, 2022, at 11:59 p.m. MST.

    The application and more information are available online now.
