Tony Hawk Foundation Invites Applications for 2011 Skatepark Grants
Deadline: March 1, 2011; October 1, 2011

The Tony Hawk Foundation provides grants to encourage and facilitate the design, development, construction, and operation of high-quality, public skateparks in low-income areas across the United States.

The foundation primarily considers funding for projects that are designed and built by qualified and experienced skatepark contractors,include local skaters in the design process, are in low-income areas and/or areas with a population of at-risk youth, can demonstrate a strong grassroots commitment, have a creative mix of street obstacles and transition/vert terrain, do not require skaters or their parents to sign waivers, encourage skaters to look after their own safety and the safety of others, are open during daylight hours all year, do not charge an entrance fee, and are in areas that currently have no skateboarding facilities.

Grants range from $1,000 to $25,000. The foundation may also offer technical assistance on design and construction, promotional materials, training materials, and safety information, and may facilitate support from vendors, suppliers, and community leaders.

The applicant must be a 501(c)(3) public charity or a state or local agency (including public school systems or public projects).
