GAIN (Golf: Accessible and Inclusive Networks)


The National Alliance for Accessible Golf (Alliance) and the United States Golf Association (USGA) believe that golf should be open to everyone and supports a wide variety of programs that create opportunities for individuals with disabilities to participate in the sport.

The Alliance and the USGA have formed a grant-making partnership to advance opportunities for individuals with disabilities through the game of golf.

This partnership is a component of the USGA's "For the Good of the Game" Grants Initiative, which has contributed more than $5 million since 1997 to programs that serve individuals with disabilities. USGA funds make these grants possible and the Alliance administers the grant making process.

The Alliance welcomes and encourages questions regarding its grant application and funding guidelines. Please do not hesitate to contact us at (812) 320-1126 or to discuss your program prior to submitting an application


All grant recipients must be nonprofit 501(c)(3) organizations or government entities such as public schools or municipalities. Visit the National Alliance for Accessible Golf Web site for complete program guidelines and application procedures.

Application Deadline:

Grant submissions are accepted on a rolling basis. The alliance grant committee will review all completed grant applications received by the last day of each month in 2011.

Award Amount:

Grant awards rarely exceed $20,000 and typically comprise less than 30 percent of a program's cash operating costs. Applicants are expected to submit detailed information on other sources of revenue that will be used to support the program.
