The mission of the United States Soccer Foundation is to enhance, assist, and grow the sport of soccer in the U.S. with a special emphasis on underserved communities. The Foundation's Annual Grants program supports both soccer programs and field building initiatives in underserved areas nationwide. Eligible applicants include community organizations, schools, municipalities, and other groups that offer soccer opportunities to youth. Program Grants are awarded to purchase uniforms, goals, and training equipment, as well for operational costs. The application deadline for Program Grants is October 1, 2014. Safe Places to Play Grants are available in four categories: Synthetic Turf, Lighting, Irrigation, and Sport Court. Requests for Safe Places to Play Grants are reviewed three times per year.
