What is a Grant?
KidSport provides grants to families who face financial barriers so kids can participate in registered sport programs and experience the lifelong benefits of a season of sport. KidSport Ponoka provides grants towards sport registration fees of up to $250 per eligible child, per year (January 1st - December 31st).
Do you need equipment in order to play?
Please let us know and we can make a referral to a partner agency. KidSport grants are intended to be used for sport registration fees only. Travel and competitions are not eligible for funding.
KidSport Ponoka uses Stats Canada’s annual Low Income Cut Off (LICO) +30% to determine financial eligibility for grants provided through the Provincial Fund.
If you are unsure of your eligibility to receive a grant, please reach out to firstname.lastname@example.org.
