YRF competitive grants can fund 25% of eligible capital costs, up to $1.2 million, for nonresidential facilities providing recreational opportunities for youth (K-12) as long as they are integrated with social and/or educational services. This grant opportunity is available to tribes, non-profits and community based organizations.
