FY 2020 International Sports Programming Initiative
Deadline: February 27, 2020

The International Sports Programming Initiative uses sports to help underserved youth around the world develop important leadership skills, achieve academic success, promote tolerance and respect for diversity, and positively contribute to their home and host communities. Sports Diplomacy programs are an important tool for advancing U.S. foreign policy goals through interaction with hard-to-reach groups such as at-risk youth, women, minorities, people with disabilities, and non-English speakers. With 2020 being the 30th anniversary of the landmark Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), the Sport for Social Change theme places an emphasis on adaptive sport and the role of the ADA in promoting inclusion and access for people with disabilities.
