Applications for Safe Sports School Award Grants Re-Opened
The District One Executive Council voted to re-open applications for District One Safe Sports School Award grants until March 15, 2017. The District One grant will cover the full cost of the application fee for 18 schools in the District (three grants for each state). The grant program is intended to help increase the number of Safe Sports Schools in District One by providing financial assistance to schools making an initial application. So far, only Maine has been awarded all three of its allotted grants. If funding is still available after March 15, schools in any state will be awarded funding on a “first come, first served” basis. If you want to apply for the award and need funding, apply for a District One grant no matter which state your school is located. D1 Secondary School AT Committee Chair Denise Alosa and Maine President Chris Rizzo can answer any questions about the grant program. Click here for more info.
