Since 2000, the Arizona Sports & Tourism Authority (AZSTA) has awarded approximately 500 grants at an estimated $24.4 million to organizations that promote youth and amateur sports in Maricopa County.

The Youth & Amateur Sports (YAS) grants goal is to identify, solicit, develop, and allocate funding for YAS projects within Maricopa County, which will service a wide variety of sporting and physical activity experiences.

AZSTA may, at its sole discretion, match two-thirds of a project's total cost up to a maximum of $250,000. Any grant application requesting more than $250,000 from AZSTA will not be accepted.
