Our Grants

The U.S. Soccer Foundation awards grants on both an annual basis (Program Grants) and a continually rolling process (Safe Places to Play Grants) to support soccer programs and field-building initiatives nationwide. Grants are provided to support all aspects of the beautiful game – from assisting programs with operational costs to creating Safe Places to Play.

For more information about our Program and Safe Places to Play grants, please review our Guide to Grants.  You can also read about past grant recipients as well as view them on our interactive Programs Map.
