Mardak Community Challenge
As a starting point, communities and programs awarded funding will need to find local funding to match the Mardak Community Challenge awards.
The Mardak funds will pay college students to teach handball and mentor younger students. Typically, the endowment will spend about $20,000 in this manner, and the USHA is looking for communities with about $2,000 in matching funds to be part of this program. This amount could be greater if the local community can match and has the program to make it work. The USHA will accept applications for the Mardak Community Challenge through Dec. 1. Awards will be made beginning in the following February and continuing until funds are depleted.
