Funding Available to Help Cover the Cost of Renting County Facilities for Youth Sports that Primarily Service Low-Income Youth

Montgomery County has allocated funding to help cover the cost of facility fee rentals for youth sports programs that primarily serve vulnerable and/or low-income youth. The program will administer the funds through the Facility Fee Assistance Program.

The County’s Community Use of Public Facilities (CUPF) interagency coordinating board’s programs must be free to participants or charge only a nominal fee to qualify for the program.

Due to the COVID-19 health crisis, only school fields are available for purposes of this subsidy program. Requests for funds can be submitted for dates of use between March 15 and Aug.15.

Only fields at elementary and middle school sites can be requested at this time, and only for the following times:
  • March 15-June 16 (or last day of MCPS school year): end of the school day until sundown.
  • Weekends and June 17-Aug. 15: 7 a.m. to sundown.
To apply for funding consideration, complete the online application.
