NEW YORK () – The National Hockey League has extended the 2003 NHL A.S.S.I.S.T. grant application deadline for youth hockey organizations. Applications sent to the National Hockey League New York offices must be received on or before Wednesday, July 16.

The NHL A.S.S.I.S.T. (The NHL Assists Skaters and Shooters Intent on Succeeding Together) grant program is designed to help youth hockey organizations worldwide defray the costs of equipment, ice time and travel expenses.  NHL A.S.S.I.S.T. will award grants in amounts of up to $10,000 USD to qualifying hockey programs, up to a total of $100,000 USD each year.

Now in its seventh year, NHL A.S.S.I.S.T. has provided financial assistance to 75 youth hockey programs from around the globe, including programs in Canada, China, Hungary, Ireland, Latvia, Mongolia, Slovakia, Russia, Romania, South Africa and the United States.  To be eligible for an NHL A.S.S.I.S.T. grant, the applying youth hockey organization must be nationally registered and a member in good standing with a local governing hockey federation.  Organizations must also be a not-for-profit entity holding a 501c tax-exempt status in the United States, or their native country's equivalent.  Grants will be awarded on the basis of need and community service efforts with special consideration given to organizations that are inclusive of girls and boys, the economically disadvantaged and physically challenged.  The NHL will determine grant recipients based on the information provided in its sole discretion. Award recipients will be announced by the NHL during the opening of the 2003-04 NHL season.

To obtain an application for the NHL A.S.S.I.S.T. grant, the NHL has established a toll-free A.S.S.I.S.T. hotline that is accessible within the U.S. and Canada (1-888-NHL-AWARD) as well as a dedicated e-mail address (ASSIST@nhl.com). Applications are also posted on the official NHL website (www.nhl.com). NHL A.S.S.I.S.T. applications will be available at the NHL offices in New York as well as through the International Ice Hockey Federation (IIHF) in Zurich, a founding partner of the NHL A.S.S.I.S.T. program.  Interested programs outside North America can request applications by contacting the IIHF at 011-411-289-8600.  Applications are available in English, French, and Spanish upon request.
