As part of the NFL's Inspire Change social justice initiative, the league announced renewals of 21 national grant partners, totaling $6.5 million in donations.

Inspire Change showcases the collaborative efforts of players, clubs, and the League to create positive change in communities across the country. Since 2017, the NFL family has provided more than $244 million to 37 national grant partners and hundreds of grassroots organizations across the country.

“Covenant House is honored and so grateful to be chosen once again by the NFL for their Inspire Change Initiative,” said Covenant House President & CEO Kevin Ryan. “We will use these funds to support our education and workforce development programs in the U.S., helping to provide more than 2,000 youth experiencing homelessness with the career and education services they need over the next year. The efforts of the players, clubs, and the NFL to walk side by side with our young people and get to know them, to not only lend financial support but so much of their time, is truly inspiring.”

Grants are awarded to nonprofit organizations creating measurable change across the four pillars of Inspire Change, which include education, economic advancement, police-community relations and criminal justice reform.
