How to Apply for a Grant for your Sporting Event

Palm Beach County offers funding to assist qualified events with specific costs through its grant program administered by the Palm Beach County Sports Commission. The financial support offered to numerous and varied events demonstrates the County’s commitment towards sustaining and enhancing its hosted events. Funds are awarded based on particular criteria, most notably the number of hotel room nights that the event generates. Our grant program is one of the reasons that Palm Beach County is a premier destination for sporting events.
