California Casualty, provider of the NEA Auto and Home Insurance Program, has begun its third year of sponsoring the California Casualty Thomas R. Brown Athletics Grant program that supports public high school athletics.
California Casualty established the athletics grant program because education budget cuts have drastically reduced support for school athletics, in some cases forcing school sports to shut down altogether. In the first two years of the grant program, $100,000 in grants was awarded to 69 schools in 26 states.
During the 2013 grant period, a total of $75,000 will be distributed to public schools across the nation in grant amounts ranging between $1,000 and $3,000. Grant applications are being accepted from September 15, 2012 to January 15, 2013.
California Casualty will notify selected schools and present them with checks by May 15, 2013.
