Youth Football Grants


The Atlanta Falcons and the NFL Football Foundation recently awarded grants to 25 youth/prep football programs and/or organizations that demonstrated a significant need for funds to refurbish football equipment. As a leader in the community and a strong supporter of youth football initiatives, the Atlanta Falcons, through the NFL Football Foundation Matching Grant program, were able to provide $25,000 in grants.
