The Independent Sports Club of Central Illinois recognizes that youth sports organizations periodically need to make permanent improvements to their facilities.  The ISC awards Capital Improvement Grants, also known as “bricks and mortar” grants, for projects like dugouts, scoreboards, lighting, concessions, bathrooms, storage buildings, etc.

The application process includes a committee review of financial health of each organization, a detailed outline and budget of their project, interviews with their administrators, and proof of fundraising efforts.  The application period for the Capital Improvement Grants runs until July 31st.
