What We Do

NFL Grassroots


The NFL Foundation Grassroots Program provides non-profit, neighborhood-based organizations with financial and technical assistance to improve the quality, safety and accessibility of local football fields. The program is a partnership of the National Football League Foundation, which provides funding, and LISC, which provides technical assistance and manages the program. 

$2 million
awarded to create 14 fields

Athletic fields can help transform neighborhoods by offering opportunities for recreation, education, and relaxation that contribute to the local quality of life. The NFL Foundation Grassroots Program seeks to redress the shortage of clean, safe, and accessible football fields in low- and moderate-income neighborhoods.

Through this partnership, Bay Area LISC has awarded over  $2 million for the creation of 14 fields in the Bay Area.
