POLO DEVELOPMENT INITIATIVE (PDI)

The Polo Development Initiative (PDI) grant program is designed to facilitate the sustainability of polo by empowering clubs and polo schools with grant-based reimbursable awards. The success of the sport depends on success of its clubs.

In September of 2018, the Club and Membership Development Committee began the strategic planning process for the PDI program. The goal of the strategic planning process was to review and amend the PDI program to have a greater impact on the growth and development of the sport at the grassroots level and sustain USPA clubs as the foundation for future growth.

South Texas group

Through the strategic planning process, the following amendments have been made to the PDI program:

  1. A transition to a grant-based program where applicants outline the specific aspects of their request including: needs assessment, project evaluation, budget, timeline, etc.
  2. Applicants may include requests to support capital improvements/investment (infrastructure)
  3. Applicants may request consideration for multi-year awards, subject to specific requirements and considerations
  4. The promotion of club cooperation through regional associations, regional tournaments/leagues, and/or joint applications
  5. Segmentation of grant applicants into Specific Categories:
    1. Tournament Specific
    2. Polo School
    3. Youth Specific Program
    4. Arena Specific Program
    5. Regional Polo Club Co-Ops
    6. Joint Club Applications
    7. Removal of the $10,000 Threshold for a Maximum Award Amount

To properly plan for the changes taking effect, the 2019 PDI deadline is being pushed back to February 15, 2019.

Please contact Justin Powers, jpowers@uspolo.org, if you have any questions regarding the PDI program and the specific changes.

A web conference will be scheduled for the evening of Thursday, January 24th (with additional conferences scheduled as needed) to review the changes to the program and answer any application specific questions. Please RSVP to Justin Powers, jpowers@uspolo.org.
