Minnesota Youth Athletic Services (MYAS) has been contracted by Hennepin County to establish a grant fund known as the Hennepin County Emergency Youth Sports Grant Program.
Youth sport organizations that serve the youth of Hennepin County are eligible to seek grant assistance to ensure your return to participation is healthy and safe. Youth sport organizations are able to request reimbursement of Covid-related expenses back to March 1, 2020. The caveat is that this money must be spent by December, 20, 2020.
Application Deadline is Wednesday, December 10, 2020.
Grant funds will be approved for the youth sport organizations who agree to the following criteria:
- Ensure all youth athletes and coaches have access to the MYAS COVID Care Education Platform
- Implement MYAS Return to Participation Requirements and Recommendations for all participation—practice, training, single games, and tournaments
- Provide updates to the MYAS regarding the use of the grant funds in compliance with the mandatory requirements.
