Grants for up to $200,000 for capital improvements to local youth sports facilities. The purpose of the funding is to provide non-profit, neighborhood-based organizations with financial and technical assistance to improve the quality, safety, and accessibility of local football fields. The target areas are underserved and low income communities where facilities are in much need of rehabilitation and improvement.

Two types of funding are available through this RFP: general field support and field surface grants. General field support grants are up to $50,000 for capital projects not associated with the actual field surface. This support includes the installation/refurbishment of bleachers, concession stands, lights, irrigation systems, etc. Field surface grants are to be used to resurface football fields.

Strong preference will be given to those proposals that (1) seek to upgrade existing facilities that are in poor condition or otherwise underutilized; (2) demonstrate active use of the fields; (3) attract matching funding that exceeds the minimum required match of 1:1; (4) involve local partnerships with non-profit community partners (e.g. Parks and Recreational Departments, YMCA branches) to promote youth and community programming on the fields; and (5) provide for continuing maintenance and field safety
