August 29, 2012-Last winter, the U.S. Soccer Foundation awarded a $50,000 grant to the Newburgh Armory and a $10,000 grant to South Bronx United. The Newburgh Armory is utilized by the Hudson Valley Youth Soccer League as well as the Olympic Development Program and Coaching Education classes of the Eastern New York Youth Soccer Association (ENYYSA). South Bronx United is a Cosmopolitan Junior Soccer League club located in one of the poorest sections of the United States.
ENYYSA is pleased to announce that the U.S. Soccer Foundation will open its 2013 Annual Grants Cycle on September 4, 2012. Grant applications will be accepted until Friday, October 5 at 4 pm Eastern time.
Located in Washington, D.C., the U.S. Soccer Foundation awards grants on an annual basis to support both soccer programs and field-building initiatives in underserved areas nationwide. Since its inception, the U.S. Soccer Foundation has provided over $57 million in financial support to soccer programs in all 50 states and the District of Columbia.
