Diversity & Inclusion Outreach Grant

The Diversity and Inclusion Outreach Grant application window is now open! If you have any diversity or outreach initiatives to help grow the base of our sport or to support an underrepresented group of swimmers in our community, but lack the funding to do so, the DEI Grant is an excellent place to start. Up to $5,000 is available in the form of PVS Grant funds. Applications can now be submitted online (Application link below). The application deadline is April 1st. Applications will be reviewed by the PVS DEI Committee and grant award winners will be announced no sooner than April 15th.

Applicants must be current PVS members (athletes, coaches, officials) in good standing to be eligible for consideration. Grant award winners are expected to provide the DEI Committee with periodic updates as requested on the status of grant programs receiving DEI Grant funding, and make a brief presentation at the PVS House of Delegates Meeting - Sunday, July 11.
