Grant Renewal

Apply for sessions between January 1 and June 30 by October 31.

Apply for sessions between July 1 and December 31 by April 30.

If we do not approve a grant renewal request, YBDF may permit the instructor to invoice for the remaining funds from the previously approved grant request, even if they are holding classes beyond the time range specified in the approved renewal application.

If we do approve a grant renewal request, the unused funds from the previously approved grant do not "roll over" — they are not added to the new grant amount. For classes taking place after the grant cycle begins (Jan. 1 or July 1), instructors may only invoice YBDF up to the amount granted by YBDF for the latest grant cycle.

Please email any updated Insurance Documents, CPR Certifications, or Yoga/Mindfulness/Meditation Instruction Certifications to
