Whitley County Grant Program 2022

The Whitley County Master Gardeners are offering up to $500 for projects that encourage gardening and/or environmental improvement activities. The applicants need to be not for profit, or have a not for profit sponsor. For example, this could include schools, scouts, 4H, or libraries in Whitley County.

The application form needs to be completed and turned in to the Whitley County Extension Office or completed, scanned and e-mailed to by October 30, 2022. The approved grant/grants will be awarded by the end of 2023.

Clearly state the connection between your organization and the education plan you are proposing. Define the objective of the project along with a reasonable time line. Grant recipients are expected to report on the results of their activity and give a presentation at a Master Gardener Monthly meeting.
