Local Sport Development Funding Available

Local Sport Development funding available to start or expand community sport opportunities

Applications are now being accepted to help local sport, municipalities, Aboriginal and community organizations increase sport opportunities for British Columbians of all ages and abilities.

The Local Sport Program Development Fund provides grants of up to $2,000 for sport programs that aim to increase access to British Columbians. This could include opportunities such as clubs establishing a youth division; a new sport program that requires specialized equipment or coach training; or a club that wants to introduce their sport to local schools.

The deadline for applications is 4:30 pm PST on February 6, 2012.

For further details, please see the program guidelines and application form online at: www.2010legaciesnow.com/local_sport_development_fund/

Originally developed by 2010 Legacies Now, the Local Sport Development Fund is supported by the Province of British Columbia through the BC Sport Agency. www.BCSportAgency.com
