Grants for Your Football Needs

USA Football grants for equipment and fields enhance teams’ football experience.

The USA Football Grant Program enables youth leagues and scholastic teams to upgrade equipment and improve playing fields. Applications for equipment, field, and product grants are available each spring.



Get the equipment that your team or league needs.

USA Football has partnered with multiple sponsors to help your organization in every aspect. From Riddell helmets to athlete monitoring tech from Catapult, we can provide your team with the gear they need. Practicing with outdated equipment? Apply to receive the most innovative equipment from Gilman Gear. If your program needs a qualified coaching staff, PeopleTrail is your go-to for background checks.

Grants are awarded based on need, merit, and your organization’s involvement with USA Football programs.

Thank you to those who applied for equipment grants this year! The application window is now closed and applicants will be notified of results in April.
