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 Tri-Cities provides grants of up to $400 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.

Eligibility Requirements

Our chapter uses Canada Revenue Agency (CRA) Notice of Assessment(s) or a Financial Verification Endorser to determine financial eligibility for grants provided through the Provincial Fund. 

Please ensure that if you are applying as a married parent, you have submitted the financial documents as per above of BOTH parents.

If you are unsure of your eligibility to receive a grant, please reach out to kidsporttricities@sportbc.com.
