DuPont Pioneer Seed Grants
The objective of these grants is to stimulate local 4-H clubs in Iowa to plan and carry out community improvement activities by providing “seed money” needed to make the projects successful.
Pioneer will provide up to $10,000, with grants amounts ranging from a minimum of $50 to a maximum of $500, to the selected 4-H clubs in Iowa. Awards will be made directly to the clubs through the Iowa 4-H foundation from Pioneer as soon as selections are made.
Local clubs should fill out the application using the Information & Tips sheets. All application materials should be submitted to the county Extension office by, or before, January 15. A county staff member should review applications as they arrive (with the youth chairperson, if possible), making sure they are complete, the budget is correct, and a support letter from the benefitting entity is included. County Staff should then add comments as indicated at the end, sign the application, then forward the completed application to the State 4-H Office. All applications are to be postmarked no later than February 1.
