Grassroots Grants Allocations Program

The Grassroots Allocations Program raises and allocates local funds to grassroots programs that provide opportunities for young people. From 1995 through 2023, PFY has donated over $2,000,000 to 499 different youth programs. Programs served include academic tutoring, recreation, diversity programs, art programs, and much, much more!

This program allocates awards ranging from $750 – $3,000 to small, hands-on, grassroots programs that provide positive opportunities for at-risk, under-served youth.

Applications for the 2024 Grassroots Grant Allocations Program open Dec. 1, 2023.


The application deadline is Friday, Jan. 19, 2024, at 5 p.m. 

A technical assistance session will be held via Zoom on Dec. 5, 2023 (4 – 5 p.m.) for anyone who has questions about the funding process and filling out the application. To RSVP, contact Kimberly Burris at (859) 280-8006 or
