This fund has identical criteria to our Community Investment Fund Program, except that the programs or projects funded must address tobacco use prevention or cessation for children 0-18 years and seniors 65 and older. Funds cannot be used to purchase durable goods over $100. Grants from this fund usually range from $100 to $5,000.

Clare County Youth Fund

This fund has identical criteria to our Community Investment Fund Program, except that the programs or projects funded must have a direct relevance to children and youth to age 20. The youth are particularly interested in projects that include youth in significant and meaningful ways during development and planning stages.
