Philadelphia Eagles award more than $50,000 to local youth and high school football programs | Football

The Philadelphia Eagles are committed to making a difference to the youth football programs throughout the Philadelphia area. In an effort to help local teams and organizations that develop love for the game at the youth level, the Eagles are distributing more than $50,000 in grants to help fund 35 local youth and high school football programs in need.

“The Return to Youth Football Grant Program allows us to support young athletes across the Greater Philadelphia Area, and to also express our appreciation to the athletic directors, coaches, and league administrators who are inspiring our youth athletes through the game of football,” said Eagles president Don Smolenski in a statement. “We are honored to support over 35 programs throughout our community.”

Funding from the grants will help programs buy safety equipment, launch tackle and flag football programs, rebound from the effects of COVID-19, and support those committed to Girls Flag Football.

Youth football teams or leagues, NFL Flag teams, high school football programs and nonprofit organizations that incorporate youth football of any kind into their programming were eligible to apply for a grant. Organizations were required to offer programs or services within the eagles market. Grants range from $500 to $2,000.
