Who is this for?

The NorCal Premier Grants are open to any NorCal Premier Soccer member clubs.  This is an organization-level grant, not team level.  So applications need to come through your club leadership, limit of one application per NorCal club.  These funds are specifically intended to help under-resourced soccer clubs & organizations working in low-income disadvantaged communities.
