TOPEKA, Kan. (Feb. 11, 2019) -- In 2019, the Track Night Region Development Grant is funded with $50,000 to be distributed to regions for the purposes of training, equipment upgrades, marketing, or offsetting costs of pilot events. Grant applications must be submitted online at https://www.scca.com/pages/scca-region-development-grants no later than February 15, 2019.
Grant requests are reviewed by a five-person committee made up of SCCA Board of Directors members and National Staff. In evaluating a grant, the selection committee will give the most attention and focus to projects that are innovative or demonstrate a need, are backed by a project management plan, and will have a positive impact on a Region or the Club as a whole. Submissions should include: Goal/Purpose, Anticipated Result, Project Timeline, Project Budget and Amount of Grant Request. Applications without a realistic and cost-effective budget will not receive consideration.
Heyward Wagner, SCCA’s Director of Marketing and Experiential Programs, pointed out that funds do NOT need to be used for Track Night activities. The monies are being offered to support any region development activity across the board.
“SCCA Track Night in America Driven by Tire Rack exists to help grow our Club,” Wagner said. “As part of that vision, the Track Night program provides support to regions so they can better position themselves to be able to give members the best possible SCCA regional experience.”
Submissions will be judged on both merit and need. If all funds are not distributed in the first round, a second submission window will be opened until April 1, 2019.
