Game On-Community Places to Play Initiative – Sep 5

Posted by Local Initiatives Support Corporation (LISC) on June 18, 2024

Game On-Community Places to Play is an initiative of The DICK’s Sporting Goods Foundation and LISC. The initiative provides funding and technical assistance to community-rooted organizations working to create and renovate multi-use youth sport spaces for youth ages 6-24 years old in under-resourced communities across the country. Special consideration will be given to programs that support youth development, including civic engagement & leadership.

The goal is to improve the quality, safety and accessibility of local athletic spaces for young people. Grant awards will range from $50,000-$100,000 and will require 1:1 match funding. Funds will be awarded to outdoor and indoor facilities that enable and demonstrate local community access and usage for all organized youth sports, including but not limited to basketball, baseball, softball, soccer, football, tennis, lacrosse and volleyball. Youth development program services should include, but are not limited to, life skills workshops, civic engagement and leadership, workforce development and academic support.

LISC will host an informational webinar about the RFP on June 26, 2024, at 1 p.m. EasternRegister for the webinar here.

The application deadline is September 5, 2024.
