I-CASH accepts proposals for agricultural youth grants

Iowa's 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 kay-mohling@uiowa.edu. 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.
