CT Chapter of US Lacrosse
Grant Committee Mission Statement
The Mission of the CT Chapter of US Lacrosse Grant Committee is to review requests from individuals and organizations seeking funding for the purpose of the development of the game of lacrosse in the State of Connecticut.
These grants include:
A) The development of new and existing programs in the State of CT.
B) The development of players, coaches and referees in the State of CT.
C) Financial grants-in-aid directed to the development of the game of lacrosse in the State of CT.
D) Overall promotion of US Lacrosse membership and goodwill in the State of CT.
Guidance to grant applicants:
The Grant Committee typically considers applications from private organizations that promote the game of lacrosse in Connecticut through new initiatives or the expansion of existing programs. The Committee does not typically consider applications from public schools or in situations where local taxpayer monies are available. Further, the Committee does not typically consider applications that seek funds for the normal operating expenses of existing programs such as town-based youth teams. In all cases, the targeted population is a factor in the Committee’s deliberations.
