Development Grants Program
In alignment with our mission, Eastern Pennsylvania Youth Soccer is pleased to announce the launch of the Development Grants Program. "To promote and facilitate the game of soccer for all youth at all levels of play in eastern Pennsylvania," the board of directors approved this program to provide funding opportunities for all eligible members. The total amount to be awarded in 2014 will be $85,000.
Grants will be awarded through an application process. The application period will be from January 1 through May 1, 2014. A committee has been established for the review of each proposal and charged with the awarding of the grant. Applicants must provide extensive information regarding their project. Among many criteria, each applicant must demonstrate their own financial and human resources being put towards the project as well as establish how this will positively impact their soccer organization and the growth of the sport. The funding is intended to go primarily, but not limited to, fields and facility improvements. The committee has the discretion to award the grants as it sees appropriate based on the general criteria. However, grants may not be used to fund positions, travel expenses or registration fees.
The 2014 Development Grants Program Application period closed May 1, 2014.
