Safe Places to Play Grants

Posted by U.S. Soccer Foundation on August 11, 2014

Since 1995, the U.S. Soccer Foundation has awarded grants to more than six hundred organizations in the United States in support of projects designed to keep children in underserved communities active, healthy, and safe. Urban areas often lack space for children to play outside. In order to provide an opportunity for all children to play soccer, the foundation has taken on the task of providing children across the nation with places to play.

The foundation’s Safe Places to Play program provides grants to organizations to help them build or enhance a field space in their communities. Grants of up to $200,000 will be awarded for the installation of field surfaces, lighting, and irrigation for field space in urban settings.

To be eligible, an applicant must apply on behalf of a program or project operating in the U.S.; and be a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit organization, school, municipality, college, university, or sovereign tribal nation.

LOIs must be received no later than September 24, 2014. Upon review, selected applicants will be invited to submit full applications by October 1, 2014.

Complete program guidelines and application materials are available at the U.S. Soccer Foundation website.
