In addition to the our various projects, the JLGC also assists the community throughout the year in other ways when there is a demonstrated need. The Community Assistance Grant Program provides monies to charitable or non-charitable organizations based on application and review. A volunteer component is not required.
The Community Assistance Grant must be filled out in full and needs to benefit organizations that match the JLGC focus area of education or any of the following areas: youth, elderly, cultural enrichment, or community awareness and/or social services.
The funds must be used in the West St. Tammany area and may not exceed $1000 per organization per year. All funds must benefit the community at large.
The following will not be considered for funding: religious instruction or teaching, political activities, fundraising expenses, contributions to capital drives or salary/overhead expenses.
The current application period extends until April 1 and grants will be awarded in May.
