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. The KidSport Alberta Provincial Fund provides grants of up to $250 per eligible kid, per year (January 1st - December 31st) towards sport registration fees.

If the child needs equipment, we will make a referral to a partner agency. Grants are intended to be used for sport registration fees; travel and competitions are not eligible for funding.

Eligibility Requirements

KidSport Alberta uses the federal government low income guidelines plus approximately 30% to determine eligibility.

To determine financial eligibility for grants provided through the Provincial Fund, the applicant needs to submit one of the following documents.  Proof of income for each adult in the home is required.

Preferred Document:

  • Canada Child Benefit Notice-page 1 and 2 most recent tax year

Other Options:

  • Proof of Income Statement-each adult in the home- accessed through CRA My Account
  • Notice of Assessment-each adult in the home-most recent tax year
  • Income Support
  • Subsidized Housing
  • Child Health Benefit letter

If you are unsure of your eligibility to receive a grant, please reach out to info@kidsport.ab.ca.
