Sports and Recreation Grants AvailableWednesday, January 16, 2013 by: Chris DawsonThe application window for Ontario Sport and Recreation Communities Fund Grants is open, Nipissing MPP Vic Fedeli said in a press release on Tuesday.
The program aims to keep Ontarians active in community sport, recreation and physical activity. It looks to increase participation opportunities in sport and recreation through new or existing programs, support physical literacy, and provide training in areas such as coaching and youth and volunteer development.
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 Statement of Interest deadline for Provincial projects is February 6, 2013 at noon EST. The Application deadline for both Provincial and Local/Regional projects is March 19, 2013 at noon EST.
Further information can be obtained by calling Fedeliâ€™s constituency office at (705) 474-8340 or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org, or by contacting Sport North Bay via email at email@example.com.
