The Thoroughbred Aftercare Alliance has announced that $3.5 million will be awarded as grants to 81 Thoroughbred aftercare organizations that currently hold TAA accreditation.
Since inception in 2012, the TAA has now awarded more than $20.7 million in grants to accredited Thoroughbred aftercare organizations.
“We are grateful to the TAA’s many supporters that have allowed us to award $3.5 million this year,” TAA President John Phillips said. “We know these funds will significantly assist the work of TAA-accredited organizations during this challenging time. As we look forward to 2021, we ask industry participants to continue to support accredited Thoroughbred aftercare and our equine athletes.”
Earmarked specifically for equine care, TAA grants have helped accredited organizations assist more than 11,000 Thoroughbreds at approximately 170 facilities across North America.
The full list of TAA-accredited organizations, information about the accreditation process, and a list of the TAA’s industry supporters is available on www.ThoroughbredAftercare.org.
