USA Equestrian Trust is accepting proposals from IRS-registered equine non-profit organizations for its 2020 grants program. In 2019, the organization awarded more than $100,000 in grants to fund equine-focused projects by more than a dozen non-profits.

Any organization applying must submit copies of its IRS non-profit determination letter and most recent Form 990, as well as a proposed budget for its project. The deadline to submit applications for the foundation's 2020 grants program is 11:59 p.m. PT Wednesday, April 22.
The Trust's financial support has been dedicated largely, but not exclusively, for initiatives that are productive across several national-level discipline and/or breed boundaries. The Trust welcomes applications for need-based projects and encourages applicants to detail those in their applications.
Among the projects funded as part of the 2019 grants program were: THE AAEP'S initiative to support the Equine Disease Communication Center and the RRP's Thoroughbred Makeover.
