Homeboy Industries Receives Support from LA Super Bowl Host Committee

Homeboy Industries is excited and honored to be named as one of the “Champion” organizations and included in the Super Bowl LVI Legacy Program.

In its journey to Super Bowl LVI, the Los Angeles Super Bowl Host Committee (LASBHC) announced 56 community organizations selected as part of the official Super Bowl LVI Legacy Program –Champions Live Here. The “Champion” organizations will receive grants and marketing recognition to support their work that represent diverse focus areas including youth engagement, workforce development and social justice across the Los Angeles region.

The Super Bowl LVI Legacy Program is a partnership between the Los Angeles Super Bowl Host Committee and the LA84 Foundation, the Play Equity Fund and the National Football League (NFL) Foundation and was launched to use the spotlight of Super Bowl LVI to showcase the achievements of local community organizations that often go unrecognized. The Legacy Program will award each of the selected “Champion” organizations with a $10,000 grant, a professionally produced vignette-style video spotlighting their organization, and public recognition of their work in the lead-up to the Super Bowl. Additionally, six of these 56 organizations will be selected to each receive a total grant award of $50,000, to make an even bigger impact in their community. The additional grant award will be announced later this year.
