Youth Services - Mini Grants

Our Youth Services office offers 2 annual opportunities for Meriden youth to apply for mini-grants for projects to make Meriden a better place to live, work, and play.  Projects must be youth-developed and youth-led, under the guidance of an adult adviser at a recognized organization that serves Meriden. This program puts youth in a leadership position to make a difference in our community.
