The Community Development Grants were established in 2010 with the purpose of providing funding to eligible member clubs and Learn to Skate USA programs throughout the United States to develop community-based programs and events that will attract, involve and inspire new generations of figure skaters. Six $2,000 grants are allocated each year to the member clubs, Learn to Skate USA programs and U.S. Ice Rink Association member facilities that most effectively demonstrate how they will use the grant to develop these initiatives.
