USEF Congratulates Second Group of 2006 Outreach Grant Recipients


Lexington, KY - The United States Equestrian Federation® has finalized the second list of breed events that will receive outreach grants through the new program announced in January.  The maximum grant is $1,000, and grants are still available.  A total of $125,000 has been budgeted in 2006 for grants to financially challenged breed competitions that meet the grant requirements and are approved by the USEF.  To date, 61 applications have been received and 49 have been approved. 

Grant requests are being evaluated based on the proposed use of funds, which must be earmarked for certain expenses including, but not limited to, EMTs, veterinarians, stewards, insurance and last minute changes of officials.
