Grants for Playground Shade Structures – Due December 31

The American Academy of Dermatology's (AAD) Shade Structure Program awards funds to schools, day cares, parks, and other non-profit organizations for installing permanent shade structures where children learn and play. Examples of outdoor locations that are eligible for grant funds can include, but are not limited to playgrounds, pool decks, ball field dugouts, eating areas, etc.

Funding may be used for the cost of materials and installation of shade structures. 

Grantees will also receive a permanent sign to be placed near the shade structure featuring sun-safety tips.
