2013 Application Packet (Deadline March 31, 2013)
History and Background: Since the beginning of I-CASH in 1990, annual funds have been designated for Iowa community grants targeted at prevention of farm-related injury in young people (less than 19 years of age).
Two of I-CASH's goals are
- to reduce agricultural-related injuries in farm youth by 25%, and
- to reduce to zero, agricultural-related deaths in youth.
We feel that there are many committed and creative communities across Iowa that can truly help make a difference in achieving these important goals. Past grantees have conducted effective community programs on farm safety, including the development of farm safety curriculum for elementary and middle school youth, the creation of educational booths with interactive displays, and sun safety education. The purpose of this grant program is to decrease the risk of illness and injury from agricultural exposures to youth living on Iowa farms or otherwise involved in production agriculture.
