The U.S. Soccer Foundation is once again accepting Letters of Interest for their Safe Places to Play program to provide children in urban areas with places to play soccer.

To be eligible for the grant, applicants must:
- Apply on behalf of a program or project operating in the U.S.
- Be a non-profit organization, school, municipality, college or university, or sovereign tribal nation.
- Apply as, or on behalf of, a field-building project.
- Own or have a minimum of a ten-year land lease/land use agreement on the land where the field-building project will take place.
