We’re looking for local sports organizations to help us expand NeON Sports offerings throughout the five boroughs. If you’re interested, you can apply for a grant of up to $5,000 to fund NeON Sports programs. NeON Sports uses a community-focused participatory budget model to enhance civic engagement. NeON Stakeholder groups which consist of community members and DOP staff choose the sports programs they feel would bring the most value to their communities. The community-selected programs fill a critical gap in these neighborhoods; and provide participants with a host of new opportunities, team building skills, and is designed to motivate participants to excel academically and can help build social skills.
