Nipissing MPP Vic Fedeli
Applications are now being accepted for Ontario Sport and Recreation Communities Fund Grants, Nipissing MPP Vic Fedeli said today.
The program aims to keep Ontarians active in community sport, recreation and physical activity. It also looks to increase opportunities for participation in sport and recreation, support implementation of physical literacy as a foundation for lifelong physical activity and strengthens the community sport and recreation sector.
Incorporated not-for-profit organizations that can offer high-quality sport, recreation and physical activity programs and have operated and been incorporated for at least one year in Ontario (including First Nations, Local Services Boards and municipalities) are eligible to apply.
As well, universities or colleges may apply to the Provincial stream for applied research projects only. Provincial Sport Organizations/Multi-sport Organizations (PSOs/MSOs) may apply to the Provincial stream only. Universities/colleges and PSOs/MSOs may also be partners on local/regional projects.
Partnerships are not mandatory but are highly recommended and may be given additional consideration.
The application deadline for Local/Regional projects is February 20, 2014 at 5 p.m. EST.
Letters of Interest (LOI) for Provincial Projects must be submitted by January 16, 2014 at 5 p.m. EST. Successful LOI applicants then must submit their full application by February 20, 2014 at 5 p.m. EST by invitation only.
Further information can be obtained by calling Fedeli’s constituency office at (705) 474-8340 or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
