A strategic NCPG initiative funded by the National Football League Foundation, Agility Grants offer funding to nonprofit organizations across the country for problem gambling prevention programs. The goal of these grants is to fill in gaps for areas that currently have no such services, as well as bolster promising efforts in existing programs.

Agility Grant funding will be deployed to support prevention programming innovation and amplification, including new activities, validation of promising initiatives or expansion of proven programming. Applications will be evaluated on several criteria, including alignment to the Agility Grants program principles and funding pillar strategies as well as anticipated community impact. Applicants are encouraged to review the SAMHSA Prevention Framework prior to submission, especially for applications targeting the Prevention Innovation pillar. 

This program is generously funded by the National Football League Foundation, with additional support from FanDuel.

Round 2 application period opens on August 1, 2022 and closes on September 7, 2022 at 11:59pm EDT. For information on the free information session webinar and office hour appointments, please visit the NCPG website by clicking here. For help creating an account or logging in to your existing account, please reference our step-by-step NCPG Grants Log In Guide.

Awards will be made in October 2022. 

Note: The proposed program/project must take place between January 1, 2023 and December 31, 2023. 

Who can apply for an Agility Grant?

  • IRS registered, tax exempt, 501(c)(3) organizations.

  • NCPG Members AND Non-Members are welcome to apply.

  • Organization and services must be based in the United States.

  • Organizations who did NOT submit an application for Round 1 of Agility Grants (Round 1 applicants will be welcome to re-apply in 2023.)

  • Programs/projects focused on Gambling Prevention programs. Programs focused on responsible gambling are NOT eligible for an Agility Grant.

    • Prevention gambling programs that are eligible to apply for Agility Grants are those designed to minimize harm on a primary level - among those who have not yet gambled; or on a secondary level – among those who have limited gambling experience. They educate, minimize harm and reduce risk factors for developing problematic gambling behavior(s).  Preference will be given to programs that focus on primary prevention but NCPG recognizes that exposure to gambling varies widely among demographic groups and is changing constantly as legalized gambling expands in the US. We encourage program applications to explain whether their project/program will address primary and/or secondary prevention. 

    • Responsible gambling programs are defined as programs and policies designed to minimize harm among those who gamble.
