Grants to USA nonprofit and government organizations for equestrian-related activities such as equine health research, and activities that facilitate national-level equestrian interest and competition. Funding is also awarded to organizations with programs focused on education, scholarship, and other similar needs of a broad-based nature, at the national (as differentiated from international high performance) level.

USA Equestrian Trust does not specifically rule out any type of project costs. However, applicants are asked to detail all costs associated with a certain project as part of the budgets they must submit with their applications. Some organizations request grants to fund projects in their entirety, while others ask for only portions of the costs.

One of the paramount factors in analysis each year is emphasizing applications in which the end-recipients of funding demonstrate actual need, and programs for which the applicant organization’s own resources are demonstrably insufficient. USA Equestrian Trust encourages organizations or individuals whose projects fit these standards to apply.
