STAGES OF THE USA LACROSSE GRANT PROCESS
Stage 1
(Step 1) DETERMINE ELIGIBLILTY

Before submitting a proposal form, applicants must review USA Lacrosse grant guidelines and requirements to determine eligibility

(Step 2) SUBMIT A PROPOSAL FORM

All organizations seeking funding, regardless of the amount or type requested, are required to submit an online Proposal Form. All forms are reviewed in detail by a panel of USA Lacrosse staff.

On or before the notification deadline, applicants will receive one of two responses via email:

  1. A notice of acceptance containing additional information and corresponding grant agreement(s).
  2. A brief explanation of why a grant or service was not awarded at this time.
Stage 2
(Step 3) GRANT AGREEMENT

If awarded, granting requirements and stipulations are outlined in a grant agreement. These agreements serve as contracts between USA Lacrosse and the grantee. Links to corresponding agreements are included in the notification email and must be completed digitally. Signed agreements must be submitted before a grant can be fulfilled. Failure to meet a grant agreement deadline could result in further review or forfeiture.

Stage 3
(Step 4) DELIVERABLES

Upon receipt of related grant agreements, USA Lacrosse will begin the fulfillment process (equipment ordering, emailed confirmations, next steps, etc.)

(Step 5) REPORTING

All grant recipients are required to complete a post-grant reflection. This survey allows USA Lacrosse to better understand the impact of the resources awarded and will guide us in evaluating and determining the structure and scope of future grant offerings. Grant Reflection links will be delivered via email 15 days prior to their due date.
