Webster County 4-H members may apply for the Webster County Youth Grant Program, which is an outgrowth of the Iowa Promise Grant due to the discontinuation of the Promise Grant Program after 2009.  The Promise Grant was originally established in result of the 1998 Iowa Summit Initiative and its emphasis on youth and community service.

Grants of up to $250 may be requested.
