New Trier Township Launches Grant Program to Fund Start-Up Social Service Projects

Grants IStock
This program will encourage and mentor small, innovative start-up groups that seek to assist New Trier Township residents in need.

 

In a move designed to serve unmet social service needs of residents; New Trier Township government has introduced the New Trier Township Incubator Program (NTTIP). The rolling grant program will provide seed or start-up funding for individuals or groups with a new or novel idea designed to provide community based services to support seniors, youth, economically challenged families and persons with disabilities.
 
"The organizations we select will demonstrate innovative ways to solve existing social problems the Board has identified in its Strategic Plan," notes Patricia B. Cantor, Township Supervisor. "Among the suggested program areas are: projects that can help seniors "age in place"; provide aid to the growing number of families who are financially stressed; offer programming for our youth who, no doubt, face more complex challenges; and advance the ability for people with disabilities to choose where they want to live and get services. The list is not inclusive but rather representative of the type of programming we are seeking," Cantor adds.
 
The program is designated for either new (less than one year) agencies or those individuals/groups in the idea phase. All recipients must be registered as 501(c) 3 non-profit organizations, or obtain that status within the first year of operation. Applicants must demonstrate a need for the proposed service within the Township borders. Program qualifications and an explanation of the application process can be found online at New Trier Township Incubator Program or by calling the Community Services Administrator at 847-446-8203.
