National Hub Expansion Grants

US Sailing plans to continue the Reach “Hub” model and national network of sailing resources to maximize the impact of creating systemic change in STEM education. We are excited to help foster new Reach Hub programs and resources to actively “normalize” STEM education and environmental literacy and responsibility utilizing our vast network of potential highly skilled workers and ocean stewards.

Reach “Center” Grants” – Support will continue in Southern California regions in 2019.


“Center of Excellence Grants” – Support will continue in Southern California and Mid-West regions in 2019. The Northeast and Mid-Atlantic have completed their final years of financial support, but they will continue to host mentoring sessions and share best practices.
