In 2001, the New York Jets formed a community partnership with the Public Schools Athletic League (PSAL) to provide support to New York City public school football programs. Through an annual matching grant from the NFL’s Youth Football Fund, the New York Jets now donate $100,000 to the PSAL’s football programs. This grant has helped to create 15 new and developmental football teams. The funding also assisted in the reconditioning of every student-athletes’ helmet and the cost for PSAL coaches to become USA Football Heads Up certified. Beyond these grants, the Jets support the PSAL in a variety of other ways including honoring the PSAL football champions at a home game during the NFL season.
