The USA Triathlon Foundation today announced its first-ever grant program, offering up to $50,000 in funding for individuals, clubs, teams and organizations to support and promote the sport of triathlon in 2015.

Grants will be awarded based on applications to establish or develop programming and support related to at least one of the Foundation’s three focus areas: providing support to youth, paratriathletes and/or U.S. Olympic hopefuls. Consideration will be given to applicants that open pathways to athletes who may not otherwise have the opportunity to participate.

Grant applications must be submitted by Saturday, Feb. 28, 2015 and funds will be distributed in March. Each grant proposal is eligible to receive up to $5,000, and funds must be used in 2015.

“We are excited with the lightning-quick progress the Foundation has made in its first few months, and look forward to awarding funds to support programs that will help promote triathlon for youth, paratriathlon and Olympic hopefuls,” said Jacqueline McCook, USA Triathlon Foundation President. “We want to thank our early donors for their support, and are eager to expand both fundraising and our grant awards in the years to come.
