BIENNIAL GRANTS OVERVIEW

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 match two-thirds of a qualifying project's total cost up to a maximum of $250,000. AZSTA accepts applications biennially and the next cycle will be for FY2022 (July 1, 2021 - June 30, 2022).

Applicants must be a Maricopa County agency, municipality, school district or any other incorporated public entity (including any combination of the forgoing) or a 501(c) (3) or (c) (4) non-profit organization, which has been in operation for no less than one calendar year.
