The Parental Support Grant, PSG, program, aims to provide financial assistance to parents who are unable to afford the costs associated with enrolling their children in youth development programs. These programs play a vital role in fostering personal growth, skill development, and social integration among young individuals. Recognizing the importance of such opportunities, this grant seeks to alleviate financial barriers and ensure that all children have access to enriching experiences regardless of their socioeconomic background.

Eligibility Criteria:

Parents or legal guardians with children between the ages of 5 to 17 are eligible to apply.


Applicants must demonstrate financial need, supported by relevant documentation such as income statements, tax returns, or proof of government assistance.

The income threshold should be at 200% of the federal poverty level, meaning families with incomes below twice the poverty level are eligible for assistance. The federal poverty level for a family of four is around $26,500 annually. Therefore, a family of four earning below $53,000 per year could qualify for assistance under this guideline.

The child must be enrolled or intending to enroll in a recognized youth development program, which may include sports clubs, arts or theater classes, STEM workshops, leadership programs, or similar initiatives focused on holistic development.


Priority will be given to families facing significant financial hardship, including single-parent households, families with multiple children, and those experiencing sudden financial setbacks such as job loss or medical expenses.

Grant Coverage:

The grant will cover a portion or the full cost of enrollment fees, program materials, transportation expenses, and other associated costs directly related to the youth development program.


Funding may also be allocated for additional support services if deemed necessary, such as tutoring, mentoring, or equipment purchase.

The amount granted will vary based on individual circumstances and the specific requirements of the chosen program, with a maximum limit established to ensure equitable distribution of funds.

PSG Application

Application Process:

      ✓ Complete PSG application
      ✓ Submit copy of monthly household bills and any other monthly expenses.
      ✓ Copy of W2 or tax return


A selection committee will review applications on a rolling basis, taking into account the severity of financial hardship, the potential impact of the youth development program on the child's development, and available funding.

Successful applicants will be notified promptly and provided with detailed instructions on how to access the grant funds and enroll their child in the chosen program.

Monitoring and Evaluation:

Recipients of the Parental Support Grant may be required to submit progress reports periodically, detailing their child's participation, achievements, and overall development.

Feedback from parents, program organizers, and participants will be collected to assess the effectiveness of the grant in facilitating access to youth development opportunities and addressing financial barriers.

Adjustments to the grant criteria and allocation process may be made based on the outcomes of ongoing monitoring and evaluation efforts, ensuring continuous improvement and alignment with the needs of eligible families.

By implementing the Parental Support Grant, CHM Bible Theatre aims to empower parents to provide their children with equal opportunities for growth and success, irrespective of their financial circumstances. Investing in youth development not only benefits individual children but also contributes to building stronger, more inclusive communities for the future.
