COLORADO SPRINGS, Colorado – USA Archery is proud to present the Veteran Athlete Equipment and Athlete Development Grant Programs. These grants for Veterans are made possible by the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs and the VA Adaptive Sports Grant and are designed to provide support for active duty and retired Veterans who are members of USA Archery.
Through the Athlete Equipment and Athlete Development Grant Program eligible athletes may apply for up to $1,000 in equipment and/or up to $1,500 in United States Archery Team (USAT) event stipends. Applications are due by March 27, 2020.
USA Archery in partnership with the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs also coordinates a monthly assistance allowance separate from the above grants. 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 recently announced a new membership benefit for all active duty military, veterans and military spouses through Choice Hotels. Through the United States Olympic and Paralympic Committee, all National Governing Bodies are now able to offer our members with military ties 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
