USA Swimming Pledges $100,000 in Hurricane Ian Relief


USA Swimming Pledges $100,000 in Hurricane Ian Relief

COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. – The USA Swimming Board of Directors has pledged $100,000 in board-designated funds for grants to support member clubs impacted by Hurricane Ian.  

 The application period is now open and the application and guidelines can be found here.  

Teams in the affected region are eligible to be considered for a relief grant of up to $5,000. To be eligible to apply for a USA Swimming disaster relief grant, teams must have suffered material losses from Hurricane Ian. To be able to use grants to provide swim team dues relief, teams must have team members and families that have suffered loss of their homes for an extended period. Based on the number of teams impacted and the desire to maximize organizational benefit, USA Swimming may be unable to honor every eligible request for assistance. The average grant is expected to be about $3,000. 

Applications will be reviewed as they are received, and clubs will be notified within 30 days on the amount granted.  The application deadline is November 30, 2022 or until the $100,000 has been fully awarded. 
 
Further questions about this grant program can be sent to clubgrantrelief@usaswimming.org.
