Grants are provided to both non-athletic organizations and clubs, along with athletic programs annually. Grant requests are typically related purchase equipment, make facility improvements, purchase new uniforms and more.
Without a formal budget, the Lincoln Activities Department is limited to fundraising in order to meet the needs of its programs, both athletic and non-athletic. Of course, the department relies on its own sponsors and fundraising efforts to meet the needs of Rails programs. But those programs also rely significantly on donations from the BLH Booster Club.
Grants are submitted to BLH using a Request a Grant form. These needs are discussed at BLH meetings and voted on by the Board of Directors.
If approved, the funds are donated to the program for their use on the stated grant need.
