UYLC to host grant planning meeting

— The Upriver Youth Leadership Council (UYLC) is hosting a public meeting Friday, Aug. 25, 7 to 9 a.m., at the Life Center, 4432 Highway 12, Kamiah. UYLC is preparing an application for a Promise Neighborhoods grant from the U.S. Department of Education and is seeking community input on how this grant funding program can best benefit upriver schools and communities. The estimated range of 2017 Promise Neighborhood grants is $4-$6 million per year for up to five years. Kamiah Joint School District No. 304 and the City of Kamiah are in support of this effort.

The vision of the Promise Neighborhoods program is that all children and youth growing up in struggling neighborhoods/communities have access to great schools and strong systems of family and community support that will prepare them to attain an excellent education and successfully transition to college and a career.

Plan now to attend this important UYLC grant planning meeting on Aug. 25, and provide insights on how this funding opportunity can best focus on education of area youth and transform local communities. A light breakfast will be provided. To RSVP, and for additional information or questions, e-mail the organization at
