District Community Grants
USTA St. Louis awards funding to deserving providers through our grants program. Grant applications must be received by April 15 and should include your organization/program biography. Providers offering tennis to area youth must offer a Team Challenge as part of their program.
All applicants must be USTA Organization members and all instructors/providers must be Safe Play Certified. Information on membership and Safe Play is available on our Net Generation page. Questions about District Community Grants should be directed to Mary Vassar.
