The U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs is accepting applications through March 17 for up to $15 million in grants for civic groups providing adaptive sports and therapeutic recreational opportunities to Veterans and members of the armed forces with disabilities.
Application instructions and eligibility information for these grants, which will help qualified organizations plan, develop, manage and implement these programs are available on the VA Adaptive Sports Grant Program page.
In 2019, the U.S. Veterans Affairs awarded $14.9 million in adaptive sports grants to 126 organizations, estimated to serve more than 11,000 Veterans and service members from every state, the District of Columbia and Puerto Rico. Of the total awarded, $1.5 million is being used to assist organizations that offer equine-assisted therapy to support mental health.
All applications must be submitted to www.grants.gov by 8 p.m. EST, March 17. The U.S. Veterans Affairs will announce awards based on a competitive selection in Fall 2020.
