KidSport provides grants to kids from families
KidSport provides grants to kids from families facing financial barriers so they can participate in registered sport programs and experience the lifelong benefits of a season of sport. KidSport Northwest Territories provides grants of up to $300 per eligible kid, per year (January 1st – December 31st) towards sport registration fees.
Grants are intended to be used for sport registration fees; travel and competitions are not eligible for funding.
Community Equipment Program
Through the KidSport Community Equipment Grant (CEG) provides grants ranging from $500 to $2,000. The CEG supports community organizations in their efforts to increase participation in sport. The fund will support projects that are intended to increase sustainable, quality participation-based sport programs by helping to offset the cost of sport equipment. This may include new programs or the expansion of existing programs.
Through this project, KidSport NWT hopes to encourage communities/schools to strengthen their physical education curriculum with the purchase of equipment that supports their programming needs. We want to have a positive, long-term influence on young people’s participation in sport and recreation throughout the north. Application deadline: November 15 (exact date to be confirmed)
