MANHATTAN, Kan. – Mini-grants are now available to support community service projects as identified by community or college-based leadership development programs.


The Huck Boyd National Institute for Rural Development and the Huck Boyd Foundation, with support from the Kansas Health Foundation, are offering up to 10 mini-grants worth $450 each. The mini-grants are to be used to implement a project of community or local need as identified through an educational leadership development program.
