The National Football League‘s Philadelphia Eagles are handing-out $50,000 in grants to 35 local youth and high school football programs in need. The funds are part of The Return to Youth Football Grant program.

The money will help programs purchase safety equipment, launch tackle and flag football programs, rebound from the effects of COVID-19, and support those committed to girls’ flag football.

“The Return to Youth Football Grant Program allows us to support young athletes across the Greater Philadelphia Area, and to also express our appreciation to the athletic directors, coaches, and league administrators who are inspiring our youth athletes through the game of football,” said Eagles President Don Smolenski. “We are honored to support over 35 programs throughout our community.”

Youth football teams or leagues, NFL Flag teams, high school football programs, and nonprofit organizations that incorporate youth football of any kind into their programming were eligible to apply for a grant. Organizations were required to offer programs or services within the Eagles market. Grants range from $500 to $2,000.
