Youth Sports Grant

The grant monies will be distributed to organizations that apply and meet requirements for application. As a reimbursable grant, funding is granted to recipients after expenses have been incurred. The grantee must complete the reporting requirements and procedures per the grant agreement to obtain the reimbursement for expenses.
