ALTA Foundation START Program

The ALTA Foundation has been piloting a program called START (Support for Teaching Atlanta Recreational Tennis) in Cobb County Title I High Schools since 2019. Title I schools receive federal funds to support academic challenges facing the high percentages of children from low-income families. While these schools may have booster clubs or receive funds for more prominent sports such as football or soccer, tennis programs tend to be ignored. 

Pebblebrook High School and Osborne High School in Cobb County have been recipients of the original ALTA Foundation START program grants. Now the foundation is expanding into Phase II in Fulton, DeKalb, Gwinnett, and Clayton counties for the 2021/2022 school year. 

The ALTA Foundation is accepting grant applications through January 31, 2022 and will be announcing awards on or before February 25, 2022.
