U.S. Soccer Foundation Opens Application Period for 2009 Program and Field Grant Awards Program
Deadline: October 15, 2008

The U.S. Soccer Foundation’s ( Program and Field Grant awards provide cash, equipment, and services for soccer programs across the United States.

Individuals or organizations are eligible to register for the foundation’s annual Program and Field grants if funding is requested for: 1) a soccer-specific program or field project that benefits a not-for-profit purpose and meets the established focus for the 2009 grant cycle; 2) a field project (including lighting) where the real property is owned at the time of registration or a minimum ten-year lease/land-use agreement is in place at the time of registration; and 3) lighting where the applicant has written authorization at the time of registration from the community where the project resides to add/use lights at the field.

For the 2009 Program and Field grants cycle, the foundation will award grants exclusively to projects and programs that develop players, coaches, and referees in economically disadvantaged urban areas encompassing populations of 50,000 or more.

The one exception to this focus is the foundation’s Synthetic Field Building grants. Synthetic Field Building grants support the construction of state-of-the-art synthetic grass soccer fields and will continue to be available to projects serving all types of communities, although the highest priority will be given to projects serving players in economically disadvantaged urban areas.

For the 2009 grant cycle, there is a $100,000 maximum request amount for Program and Field grant types and a $200,000 request limit for Synthetic Field Building Grants.
