Nfl Youth Football Fund
The Fund's Grassroots Program, a partnership of the National Football League Youth Football Fund and the Local Initiatives Support Corporation, provides neighborhood-based organizations with financial and technical assistance to improve the quality, safety, and accessibility of local football fields. Grants are awarded for capital improvement projects. All organizations applying for funds must be located specifically and exclusively within NFL Target Markets (areas where the NFL has a team) and serve low- to moderate-income areas within those markets. Preference is given to proposals that seek to upgrade existing facilities that are in poor condition or otherwise underutilized; demonstrate active use of the fields; attract matching funds that exceed the minimum required match of 1:1; involve local partnerships with nonprofit community partners to promote youth and community programming on the fields; and provide for continuing maintenance and field safety.
