COLORADO SPRINGS, Colorado – USA Archery is proud to present the Veteran Athlete Equipment Grant Program. This grant is made possible by the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs and the VA Adaptive Sports Grant and is designed to provide support for active duty and retired Veterans who are members of USA Archery.
Through the Athlete Grant Program eligible athletes may apply for up to $1,000 in archery equipment. Applications are due by March 27, 2021.
Diana Romero, an up and coming archer and Air Force veteran who was a recipient of a 2020 equipment grant commented: “I am most appreciative of this gracious assistance. The USA Archery Veteran Athlete Grants show me that USA Archery is dedicated to its Veterans! It will make participating in archery more accessible to me; thank you so much!”
USA Archery in partnership with the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs also coordinates a monthly assistance allowance separate from the above grant. These monthly stipends assist eligible service and non-service-connected military Veterans in their efforts to represent Team USA at the Paralympic Games, Olympic Games and other international sport competitions. Through the program, VA will pay a monthly allowance to a Veteran with either a service-connected or non-service-connected disability if the Veteran meets the minimum military standards or higher (i.e. Emerging Athlete or National Team) in his or her respective Paralympic sport at a recognized competition.
USA Archery also offers a membership benefit for all active duty military, veterans and military spouses through Choice Hotels. Through the United States Olympic and Paralympic Committee, our members with military ties are eligible for an automatic upgrade to Lifetime Gold Status at Choice Hotels. After enrollment in the rewards program, 2,500 bonus points will be awarded following the first qualifying stay.< Back to All News
