One Month Left to Apply: Second 2021 Grant Cycle Closes Oct. 31
There are only a few weeks left to request support for late 2021 and early 2022 tennis programs from the USTA Florida Section Foundation. The Foundation’s second grant cycle of the year will close on Oct. 31.
The Foundation, which is the giving arm of the USTA Florida Section, closed out the first grant cycle of 2021 by granting nearly $40,000 back to the Florida grassroots tennis community. Since 2005, the USTA Florida Section Foundation has had a community impact of more than $1,805,000 through equipment and financial support. That support has gone towards adaptive and youth programming, community tennis programs in economically challenged areas, and building or restoring of quality public tennis facilities across the state.
