NFL Play 60 After-School Kickoff


Through a partnership between the NFL, NFL Network and NRPA, local park and recreation sites in 12 designated NFL markets can help fight childhood obesity and support health and physical activity in after-school programs through the NFL NRPA Play 60 After-School Kickoff grant. This grant provides the opportunity to receive funding support and equipment to complement after-school physical activities and health and wellness education programs.

Grant funding, valued at $7,500, can provide new equipment, curriculum, refurbished play spaces, additional staff to run physical activity-based programming, or support the start or growth of an NFL PLAY 60 program. Grantees will participate in NFL PLAY 60 events and one PSA promoting the initiative, which will air on NFL Network’s local cable affiliates. Qualifying grantees must reside within 30 miles of the NFL team training facility and/or NFL team stadium.
