CAHA Grant Program

CAHA is pleased to announce four different Grant Programs for the 2017-2018 season. The grant programs are: ADM Cross Ice/Half Ice Implementation, Carolina Play Hockey Growth and Retention, Player Development and Try Hockey for Free. The purpose of the CAHA Grant Program is to assist affiliate member associations to increase participation in the sport of hockey and promote player development in the Carolinas. All member associations in CAHA are eligible to apply. Member associations will be asked to come up with ideas to grow the sport at the local level and can seek financial assistance from CAHA to help support their efforts. We are looking for the associations to furnish the ideas, leadership and hard work to successfully manage their program and to help grow the sport of hockey within our Affiliate.

Application deadline is June 30, 2017. Members are encouraged to file applications electronically via email, however hard copies will continue to be accepted as well.

NHLPA Goals and Dream Fund

For the last 12 years, NHLPA members (NHL players) have helped more than 60,000 underprivileged children play hockey through equipment donations from the NHLPA Goals & Dreams fund. The players' program has donated more than $20 million to help grassroots hockey programs in 25 countries, which makes it the sport's largest grassroots program in the world!

The players want to continue to help even more children play the great sport of hockey and with the help of USA Hockey, they are looking for more programs and kids to help! The NHLPA Goals & Dreams equipment grant application is easy to fill out and return to the NHLPA. We encourage you to fill it out in order to help kids in your community, or pass it on to your organization that could benefit from a significant hockey equipment donation, at no cost to their program, from the NHLPA members.

For more information on the NHLPA Goals & Dreams fund, please check out their website: nhlpa.com/giving-back or contact Matt Langen at mlangen@nhlpa.com.
