American Academy of Dermatology Shade Structure Grant Program
The deadline for submissions is Saturday, February 1, 2014, 11:30pm (CST).
The American Academy of Dermatology’s (Academy) Shade Structure Grant Program awards grants to public schools and non-profit organizations for installing permanent shade structures for outdoor locations that are not protected from the sun, such as playgrounds, pools or recreation spaces.
Each shade structure grant is valued at a maximum of $8,000, which includes the cost for a shade structure and installation. The number of grants depends on the availability of funding each year.
In addition to the grant, the Academy also provides a permanent sign near the shade structure.
The Academy’s Shade Structure Grant Program is open to 501(c) (3) non-profit organizations that provide services, programs and curricula on sun-safety to children and teenagers who are 18 and younger. Examples of outdoor locations that are eligible for grant funds can include, but are not limited to, playgrounds, pool decks, ball field dugouts, eating areas, etc.
To be considered, applicants must:
• Be a non-profit organization or public school.
• Provide services for children ages 4-18 years old.
• Demonstrate an ongoing commitment to sun-safety/skin cancer awareness within their organizations by teaching sun-safety in the classrooms, practicing healthy sun habits while outside and making a commitment to educating the youth on the dangers of UV rays and prevention of skin cancer.
• This awareness program can be repurposed with materials available from other organizations (such as the
American Cancer Society, EPA SunWise Program, CDC Sun Safety for America’s Youth Toolkit, or Cancer Control PLANET) or can be original content developed specifically for your audience.
• Sun-safety/Skin cancer awareness program must be in place for at least one year prior to grant application.
• Be recommended by an Academy member dermatologist. (Locate an Academy member dermatologist by using the Find a Dermatologist link on the Academy’s website, www.aad.org.)
• Be considering a shade structure that meets the stringent shade requirements of the Academy.
SHADE STRUCTURE CRITERIA
A shade structure is defined by the Academy as being a permanent structure with a roof made of protective materials, such as textile, fabric, metal or wood, and supported by permanent columns or posts. Grant recipients are able to select the size and type of the structure that best fits their outdoor location and meets the Academy’s shade structure criteria.
The manufacturer or contractor must design and install a shade structure that meets the following criteria:
• The shade structure must be a permanent structure with a roof constructed of shade cloth, metal or wood and provide significant protection from ultraviolet radiation (UVR).
• Cloth/Textile roof structures
• Shade cloth or roof structures must include documentation about the percentage of UVR that will be blocked by the fabric or the Ultraviolet Protection Factor (UPF).
• The Academy recommends fabric that provides a UPF of 30 or above, which is approximately 96.7% of UVR blocked.
• If a UPF value cannot be determined for the fabric style and color you have selected, you will be asked to choose a shade structure roof material which blocks a percentage of UVR closest to this recommended percentage.
• Grant recipients must provide the manufacturer’s specification documents showing the UVR-blocking properties and test method. The Academy recommends that shade cloth meet U.S. standards for UPF testing and labeling of UV–protective textiles (AATCC 183; ASTEM D6603).
• Hard-top roof structures
• Hard-top roof structures, either wood or metal, will block 100% of direct UVR and do not require documentation about the UVR blockage.
If the shade structure that your organization is considering does not meet the criteria above, please do not complete an application. Examples of ineligible shade structures include: slat-roof structures, slat-roof/trellis gazebos, trellis roofs designed for future plant coverage, shade trees, small cap-roof structures designed for pieces of playground equipment.
