GRANT PERIOD
The grant application period will open Jan 23, 2017 and close March 24, 2017 or until the designated funding has been spent - which ever occurs first.

ELIGIBILITY
In order to be eligible for a MAATA SSSA Grant, a school must have already completed the NATA SSSA application and be prepared to apply for the award. The athletic trainer submitting a grant application must be a MAATA member in good standing.

NOTIFICATION
Schools will be notified of their selection for funding via email. Funds will be sent directly to the NATA from MAATA. (NATA will be notified schools who have been awarded funding and will be looking for your application!)

UTILIZING GRANT FUNDING
***Schools Seeking a SSSA for the First Time
A school awarded a grant should include a check for only $75 (instead of the full cost of $150) when applying for an NATA SSSA. After notification of being awarded a grant, a school must apply to NATA for the Safe Sport School Award within 30 days. After this time funding will no longer be available and may be awarded to another school.

***Schools Seeking to Renew SSSA
A school awarded a grant to renew a SSSA should include a check for only $50 (instead of the full cost of $100) when applying for an NATA SSSA.

After this time funding will no longer be available and may be awarded to another school.

AFTER EARNING THE NATA SSSA
