What is a Grant?
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 Parkland provides grants of up to $300 per eligible child, per year (January 1st - December 31st) towards sport registration fees.
Do you need equipment in order to play? Let us know, and we can make a referral to a partner agency. KidSport grants are intended to be used for sport registration fees; travel and competitions are not eligible for funding.
KidSport Parkland uses the following eligibility requirements to determine financial eligibility for grants provided through the Provincial Fund.
Preferred financial verification:
- Most recent Notice of Assessment for ALL adults in household. (use line 236, taxable income)
- Canada Child Tax Benefit notice pg 1/2
- Children/youth from families on low income, unemployed, on AISH, currently receiving income support and/or working hard to make ends meet are all considered eligible. KidSport Parkland considers social and economic barriers facing the child’s family when determining eligibility.The maximum family income for KidSport Parkland funding is $45,000 for one child, and follows the Low Income cut-offs (LICO) before tax depending on family size or extenuating circumstances.
