Grants for Your Football Needs

USA Football grants to help grow and improve the sport.

YOUTH PROGRAM GRANTS

The USA Football Grant Program helps organizations and teams operate their program or improve and enhance the quality of the athlete experience. USA Football is proud to work with partners in the football marketplace to make this happen.

TWO GRANT CYCLES

SPRING & FALL GRANTS

You spoke, we listened. With two grant cycles to help youth football organizations, we’re trying to make using a grant easier.

These grants are meant to help programs grow, improve and sustain their league. This includes equipment for various game types, along with uniforms and apparel packages that fit any budget.

SPRING GRANTS

Spring Grants for 2022 have closed. Please read below for information on Fall Grants and remember to watch your inbox throughout the year for other possible grant opportunities.

FALL GRANTS

Youth organizations that enroll by September 1, 2022, are eligible to receive our Fall Grants applications. Please ensure that your league administrator has updated their USA Football dashboard with league information and filled out their League Excellence Program (LEP) information located on the program administrator's League Excellence dashboard. LEP status is taken into consideration when evaluating fall grant applications, learn more about LEP here.

Eligible organizations will be notified via email when the fall grant application opens in early August, with fall grant applications due in mid-September. USA Football will review fall grant applications during October, and notify all organizations of award or denial via email by mid-November.
