USEF Announces 2006 Outreach Grant Recipients


Lexington, KY – The United States Equestrian Federation® has finalized the list of breed events that will receive outreach grants through the new program announced in January.  A total of $125,000 has been budgeted in 2006 for grants to financially challenged breed competitions which meet the grant requirements and are approved by the USEF.  This program operates on a first-come, first-served basis.  The maximum grant is $1,000.

Each grant request was evaluated based on when it was received and on the proposed use of funds, which must be earmarked for certain expenses including EMTs, veterinarians, stewards and insurance.  Application information was reviewed by the USEF National Affiliate Staff.  The final decision for grant approval was made by the USEF Executive Office after a recommendation by the National Affiliate Staff.


The new program has elicited much interest and many applications have been received. The first group of applications has been reviewed by the Sport Programs Department and recommendations sent forward to the executive offices for final approval. Following is a list of those events that will be receiving the first grant funding:
