Central Leader - - NEWS -

A unique youth fund is ac­cept­ing ap­pli­ca­tions from young peo­ple for com­mu­nity projects.

Youth Af­fairs Min­is­ter Nikki Kaye says $200,000 is avail­able through the Min­istry of Youth De­vel­op­ment’s 2014 Youth Fund.

‘‘[It] sup­ports com­mu­nity projects de­signed and led by young peo­ple (aged 12-24), or by youth or­gan­i­sa­tions in part­ner­ship with young peo­ple that de­velop ac­tive com­mu­nity par­tic­i­pa­tion,’’ Ms Kaye says.

Fund­ing will be be­tween $2000 and $7000. Ap­pli­ca­tions close at noon on Septem­ber 24. The projects need to start from Jan­uary 1, and be com­pleted by June 30.
