USTA Serves, the national charitable foundation of the United States Tennis Association, has announced it has awarded United Neighbors Inc. a $15,000 matching grant.

United Neighbors, located in Davenport, will use the grant to support its Tennis and Outreach program, which targets at-risk youth in the community and introduces them to tennis while providing academic support in the form of tutoring and after-school and summer programs. The program serves more than 600 children ages 4 to 12.

Grants are awarded to programs that successfully combine tennis and education and help children pursue their goals by leading healthier lives, succeeding in school and becoming healthier citizens. USTA Serves awarded 38 community organizations more than $324,000 in grants.
