Recreational Grants Available to Promote Accessible Golf

grantsFunders: Nat’l Alliance for Accessible Golf and the United States Golf Assn.; Opportunity: Accessible Golf Program Grants (2016 grants); Funding Focus: Accessible recreation, golf and youth; Geographic Focus: National; Eligibility: Nonprofit organizations, government agencies and educational institutions; Funding: Grants of up to $20,000 each; Deadline: Rolling (a grants committee reviews applications monthly).

Summary: Grants make the game of golf more accessible to people with disabilities. Priority is given to inclusive programming — opportunities allowing participants with disabilities and participants without disabilities to learn and play the game side by side. Grants are provided to assist with core golf program costs such as adaptive golf clubs and bags, golf course access, and transportation of participants to and from programming. Matching funding is encouraged.

Children’s groups can benefit. The group last year gave $6,500 to the Children’s Course, Gladstone, OR, to expand the GAIN Adaptive and Inclusive golf program for children. For a complete list of past winners, go to: http://tinyurl.com/cdp-7710g
