The Florida Sports Foundation’s Grant Programs were established in 1996 to assist communities and host organizations in attracting sports events to the state of Florida. The Foundation’s Board of Directors awards grants on a quarterly basis, and places emphasis on out-of-state economic impact, return on investment, community support and image value to the state.  Events that will be considered for grant funding include amateur events, collegiate events, or professional all-star games and championships, or other categories approved by the Foundation’s Board of Directors.
