Additionally, grants are for the use of NBRPA members only and are not available to support the not-for-profits or existing business interests of the applicants.

The NBRPA’s Members Services and Benefits Committee will award funds to qualifying member applicants with financial needs such as, but not limited to the following:

  • Equipment / Technology
  • Licensing Fees
  • Career Development Programs
  • Vocational Training
  • Other Areas Applicable to an NBRPA member

“We are proud to introduce and offer this Business Development Grant to our membership,” said Scott Rochelle, President & CEO, NBRPA. “Our organizational mission is to serve former professional basketball players and support them in life after their playing days, and this grant, in conjunction with our vast array of player funding services and benefits, allows us to continue providing crucial resources for the advancement of our members’ educational and professional goals.”  

Business Development Grant applications will be reviewed quarterly by the NBRPA Member Services & Benefits Committee and will be assessed and awarded based on the merit of the strength of the application and the operations of the potential recipient. They will not be judged by the personal profile of the applicant or any relationship with the NBRPA or its members.
