December Deadline for 2016 PDGA Innovation Grants - Round 2

The PDGA Innovation Grant Program was created in 2008 to increase and promote the awareness of the sport of disc golf and the Professional Disc Golf Association. Applicants are encouraged to think outside of the box to develop innovative and unique programs which will promote the sport and increase participation.

The deadline for submission of applications for the first round of 2016 Innovation Grants is December 1st, 2016.


  • Proposals should support the mission of the PDGA Innovation Grant Program
  • Applicants may request cash, PDGA memberships, PDGA merchandise, or a combination of the three with a total value not to exceed $500.
  • Project ideas should be innovative and unique.
  • Project ideas should promote the PDGA in a good light.
  • Project ideas should help grow the sport by encouraging increased participation.
  • The grant program was not created to fund the sanctioning of tournaments or leagues.  For more information, visit the online PDGA Event Santioning Agreement.
  • Innovation Grants will not fund tangible assets (i.e. computers/computer hardware, etc.) that will revert to the owner after the project is complete.
