Hometown Grant

The Indianapolis Colts and the America Dairy Association Indiana are teaming up to show their continued commitment to child health and wellness by opening their application for a $10,000 ‘Hometown Grant’ to support healthy nutrition and physical activity programs within an Indiana school district. The first 25 districts to apply will receive an Indianapolis Colts Team Stamped Football & a “Winners Drink Milk” prize pack!

The ‘Hometown Grant’ program, developed by Fuel Up to Play 60 and the NFL, provides local organizations with the opportunity to identify deserving schools in their area and award them with a $10,000 to help meet their health and wellness goals. In its fifth year, the Hometown Grant program allows each of the 32 NFL Clubs, Fuel Up to Play 60 and local dairy representatives to provide funding to schools throughout the country totaling $320,000 this year. Previous Indiana Hometown Grant winners include Pike Township, Decatur Township, Lawrence Township and Warren Township. 

The $10,000 Hometown Grant application can be found at WinnersDrinkMilk.com/grants. The grant application period ends June 15, 2018 with a chosen school/district being awarded funding during the 2018-19 school year.
