About the Course Grant Program
NEFA proudly offers grants for promoting the growth or improvement of disc golf courses throughout New England, eastern New York and northern New Jersey. The grants are available for any NEFA member or group of members. All grant funding is subject to the requirements, guidelines and criterion listed in this application as well as available funding each year.

You can apply to this program at anytime. The NEFA Board of Directors anticipates reviewing and making decision on grants at the first meeting after May 1st and October 1st and making up to 2 grants in each period. Applications may be awarded, decline or delayed. Applications are evaluated by the entire NEFA Board using a shared and standard rubric.

The NEFA Course Grant Program is designed to support specific disc sport materials, infrastructure and projects that help to grow disc sports for the use and enjoyment of the general public and not to fund the sanctioning of tournaments or leagues.
