As part of World Lacrosse’s on-going efforts to provide world-class support to existing and future Continental Federations and sixty-five current member National Governing Bodies, we are pleased to offer two new grant programs. The Continental Federation and National Governing Body Grants are an opportunity to obtain resources from World Lacrosse to aid in the development of the sport within their region.

The CF and NGB Grants will be available for activities and/or projects that accomplish one or more of the following:
- Organizational Development – activities/projects that strengthen the operational capabilities of the organization.
- Education and Training – measurable activities that further the development of coaches and/or officials to provide an improved athlete experience.
- Athlete Development – measurable activities/programs that are designed to recruit, train, and retain grassroots level participants.
- Miscellaneous – activities/programs that will benefit the development of the sport and have a measurable impact on participation growth.
