Funding is intended to support costs associated with organization, administration, marketing, staff, equipment, and provision of facilities.

- Be established in the NFL player or coach applicant’s name and be organized and attended by the player or coach
- Not be a source of revenue (e.g., salary, endorsements, etc.) for the NFL players, coaches, and other involved parties
- Have insurance
- Include an onsite licensed healthcare professional

Acceptable budget expenses:

- Facilities – (site rental fee, gym rental…)
- Staff – (EMS, coaching stipends, security, photographer…)

Pre-Application Information:

Application is due March 31, 2019.

First-time coaches at camps funded through the NFL Foundation must complete the Foundation's online Coach Smart course with instruction on heat and hydration and concussion awareness and prevention. This year's Coach Smart Course includes an updated CDC concussion awareness video.

For first time applicants and any players who need assistance running camps, the NFL Foundation strongly recommends applying for the USA Football FUNdamentals camp (available once the applicant logs in and registers). FUNdamentals is designed to provide a turn-key and ready-to-execute, non-contact youth football clinic at the desired facility. The objective is simple: Make it easy for caring NFL players and coaches to provide a positive football development experience to children in their communities.
