State Legislative Grants
NATA continues to support AT legislation on the state level, providing more than $600,000 in legislative grants to states in 2015. State legislative grants are used to support legislation related to AT regulation and youth sports safety bills that address concussion management, emergency action plans and/or heat acclimatization policies.
