Purpose

The purpose of the paratriathlon committee grant is to support programming designed to grow the sport of paratriathlon.  Grant amounts will be determined based upon the overall quality of the event as it pertains to promoting the sport of paratriathlon.

Eligible Applicants

Applicants must promote awareness, understanding, growth, or safety for the sport of paratriathlon. Possible events include pre-race clinics, workshops, community/public sport programs, or camps that address the needs of paratriathletes. In the case that a single event is not wholly paratriathlon-specific, grant money may be used to offset costs associated with that portion of the event that is associated with paratriathlon (e.g. travel expenses for presenters, mailing expenses, training materials related to this segment, other expenses as justified by the event coordinator/director).

This grant is NOT intended for individuals but rather for clubs and organizations.
