NFL/LISC Grassroots Program and Cleveland Browns Grant $250,000 for Start High School


Toledo Public Schools will install a new synthetic turf field at Start High School, thanks in part to a $250,000 grant from the Cleveland Browns through the National Football League Foundation Grassroots Program. The grant from the Browns, the NFL Foundation and the Local Initiatives Support Corporation (LISC) is part of more than $3 million in field refurbishment awards allocated this year.


To celebrate the project, TPS, the Browns, the NFL, and LISC will host a groundbreaking ceremony at Start at 1:30 p.m. on Thursday, May 10.


Through Browns Give Back, the Cleveland Browns are committed to assisting the development, safety and growth of youth and high school football in Ohio with year-round programming for players, coaches, officials and parents. Through camps, clinics and other initiatives, the Browns’ goal is to promote healthy, social, emotional, intellectual and physical development of youth by enhancing opportunities for youth football participation and education.


The NFL Foundation/LISC Grassroots Program, a partnership between the NFL Foundation and LISC, the nation’s leading community development support organization, has committed nearly $46 million to the program since 1998, supporting 336 projects nationwide. Fields are

newly built or significantly renovated, with improvements including irrigation systems, lights, bleachers, scoreboards, goal posts and turf. Grassroots grants are issued once established funding thresholds are reached for each project.
