NEW Community Changemaker Grants for Native Youth

Grant Opportunities

Community Changemaker Grants

Community Changemaker Grants are small amounts of money ($250) that can help supercharge a youth-led health event.

They are open to American Indian and Alaska Native youth ages 14-24 years old.

The application is easy, but if you need help feel free to contact, Dr. Wendee Gardner, NIHB’s Native Youth Engagement Manager.

How to Use Community Changemaker Funding

Some will use Community Changemaker funding to buy T-shirts for a suicide prevention walk they organize. Others will use this funding to offer snacks and drinks at a round dance where participants learn about healthy foods. Some might even use the grant to cover the cost of a band at an event they organize on healthy relationships.
