This year, the New England Patriots Alumni Club (NEPAC) is taking new steps to fulfill its mission to support and fund youth and high school sports programs throughout New England with an emphasis on football.
We're proud to announce our newest charitable contribution to the football community: high school football grants!
Massachusetts football coaches, principals and athletic directors can expect to receive NEPAC grant applications in their school mailboxes by August 2008.
NEPAC grant applications will be evaluated based on need, but NEPAC hopes to help every public secondary school in Massachusetts with a football team by January of 2011. Thus, schools receiving money for this football season would likely not be eligible again until all qualified applications have been met. Schools not awarded grants this football season would have the opportunity to re-apply next year.
· may only be applied for by Massachusetts coaches, principals and athletic directors
· must be for programs or materials that directly benefit high school football teams
· must be used in the school year in which they are awarded
· may not be used for coaching compensation or training, nor for special events
