USA Track & Field Foundation Youth Club Grant

The USA Track & Field Foundation Youth Club Grant seeks to support and expand high quality programs and clubs that attract youth from diverse ethnic and socioeconomic backgrounds and that promote character building, education, and healthy behaviors, including event participation in track and field and cross country/road running. The Foundation favors the use of grant money to expand existing youth programs/clubs, to provide additional competitive opportunities for children, and to enhance the experience for all participants. Preference is given to clubs that are based in low-income areas. It also favors programs that have a history of solid financial management, multiple funding sources, and community support. Allowable expenses include equipment, uniforms, meet fees, travel, facility rental, staff and volunteer training, and outreach. Grant amounts vary. The next application deadline is December 1, 2014.
