I-CASH accepts proposals for agricultural youth grants
Center for Agricultural Safety and Health (I- CASH) is seeking proposals for
its grant program aimed at decreasing the risk of illness and injury to young
people living on Iowa farms or involved in agriculture.
Since its inception in 1990, I-CASH has designated $5,000 in grants each
year for communities to develop farm injury prevention and education programs
targeted for Iowa's youth. Past grantees have conducted community programs
on farm safety, including the development of farm safety curriculum for elementary
and middle school children, educational booths with interactive displays,
and sun safety education.
For more information or an application packet, contact Kay Mohling, program
coordinator, at (319) 335-4219 or via e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Applications are also available online at www.public-health.uiowa.edu/icash.
The deadline for applications is Jan. 15, 2003.
I-CASH is a partnership of the UI, Iowa State University, the Iowa Department
of Public Health and the Iowa Department of Agriculture and Land Stewardship.
