Zoo Kids, Inc. and the Louisville Zoo strive to make this program accessible to all schools/organizations within Kentuckiana. However, there are many elements that go into allotting support. Please note that applicants who have never been funded by Zoo Kids, Inc. will be considered first. Submitting an application does not guarantee that you will receive a grant even if your school/group has received one in the past. Zoo Kids, Inc. may also offer partial funding depending on the volume of requests and funds available.
