The NAF21 MWR sports grant budget is exhausted. NAF22 funding begins on 1 February 2022. Each year we evaluate the program and release the following year's guidance via ALCGPSC. That announcement is published in January and contains information for events occurring after 31 January 2022
The Coast Guard has always recognized athletic participation as an essential part of health and physical fitness. Sports and fitness have a direct impact on the readiness of our Active Duty (AD) force. In addition to the physical aspects of sports, athletic competition teaches teamwork, sacrifice, and develops a will to win. It is Coast Guard MWR policy to support all athletes by offering financial assistance to defray the costs of participation in sporting events authorized through the MWR Sports Grant Program.
The program is available to all AD personnel. Each member may receive up to $400 in grants each NAF year (1 February through 31 January). There is no longer a limit to the number of grants awarded in a year. MWR will consider all grant requests. You are encouraged to participate in multiple events to maximize the use of this program. Organized live and virtual events are permitted.
