MSYSA has launched a Recreational Grant Program that is specifically geared towards MSYSA Recreational Affiliated Leagues. This program has been created for the purpose of enhancing recreational soccer clubs and recreational leagues within the State of Michigan.
Any league or club currently affiliated with the Michigan State Youth Soccer Association may apply for a grant. The following are ideas for grant topics, but are, by no means, the only ideas that may be successful; outreach to schools to increase membership, setting up a play day or tournament, long-range-planning process, player/coach handbook, financial software, startup newsletter costs, training equipment, coaching education, web page development, computer, software, etc.
Grant Applications Due December 3, 2012!

EDA will make construction, non-construction, and revolving loan fund investments under the Public Works and Economic Adjustment Assistance Programs. Grants made under these programs will leverage regional assets to support the implementation of regional economic development strategies designed to create jobs, leverage private capital, encourage economic development, and strengthen America’s ability to compete in the global marketplace. Through the EDAP FFO, EDA solicits applications from rural and urban communities to develop initiatives that advance new ideas and creative approaches to address rapidly evolving economic conditions.
EDA will accept and review applications submitted under its Public Works and Economic Adjustment Assistance programs in funding cycles. To be considered during a particular funding cycle, complete applications must be validated and time-stamped by www.grants.gov by 11:59 p.m. Eastern Time on the applicable funding cycle deadline. Alternatively, paper applications may be delivered with delivery confirmation to the applicable regional office. Paper applications must be received at or before 5:00 p.m. local time in the applicable regional office on the funding cycle deadline. If your application is received after the deadline, it will be considered late and will not be reviewed by EDA for that funding cycle. EDA will not accept facsimile or email transmissions of applications.
The next four funding cycle deadlines are: (i) December 15 for funding cycle 2 of FY 2012; (ii) March 9 for funding cycle 3 of FY 2012; (iii) June 8 for funding cycle 4 of FY 2012; and (iv) September 20 for funding cycle 1 of FY 2013. Applications for financial assistance submitted under EDA’s Planning, Partnership Planning, Local Technical Assistance, University Center, and Research and National Technical Assistance Programs are not subject to the procedures and deadlines described in the FFO. The program information and application requirements for these programs will be published in separate FFO announcements.

EDA will publish a separate FFO for any such appropriations.
