Grants From Little League

In 2015, Little League launched the Little League Grant Program. The Grant Program is an exciting and easy opportunity for you to grow your league, and all leagues are encouraged to apply for these beneficial grants that could greatly assist your operations while providing an even more positive experience for your local Little Leaguers and community. In an effort to not just grow your league, but Grow the Game as well, Little League has made various, impactful funds available to leagues in need. Grants can range from several thousand dollars up to $20,000 per grant.

Grants are available for:

  • General League Enhancement
  • Enhancement/development of the Challenger program
  • Enhancement/development of the Softball program
  • And to leagues enrolled in the Little League Urban Initiative

Please click for the Grant Application and other important materials, which include information on how to apply, and what grants your league may be eligible for. In the application, it's important that you detail your Project Description of how the funds will be used, and how those funds would benefit and grow your local Little League program.

Please note, to receive assistance through The Little League Grant Program, leagues must be chartered and in good standing with Little League International.
