Pacific Forest And Watershed Lands Stewardship Council
The Council’s Youth Investment Program (YIP) is designed to improve the lives of underserved youth in Northern and Central California by providing greater access to outdoor experiences ranging from urban parks to watersheds in the wilderness. The YIP Infrastructure Fund is designed to support efforts to improve community parks and open spaces to make them more accessible, viable, and safe for children and youth. Funded proposals will increase and/or greatly improve park infrastructure and will directly result in creating more welcoming environments. Of particular interest are proposals that have identified park projects which address the lack of outdoor space for underserved children and youth and that will result in long-term infrastructure improvements designed to encourage parks’ usage. Funded projects must be completed within two years of funding. Priority will also be given to existing facilities and those that create facilities with the potential for broad community impact and that are accessible by the target population. Additional information including an eligibility quiz can be found on the Web site.
