Youth Grants

Each of our Units is encouraged to request a Youth Grant to help them reach the youth in their local community. The local units can request up to $1,000.00 each year. In the past some of our Units have used the grants to help support little league teams, Shop with a Cop Programs, Thanksgiving and Christmas food baskets, and a giveaway of flashlights for safe trick-or-treating.
