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 Manitoba East Region provides grants of up to $500 per eligible child, per year (January 1st - December 31st) towards sport registration fees.
KidSport grants are intended to be used for sport registration fees; camps, travel and competitions are not eligible for funding.
If your family's financial situation has been impacted due to COVID-19, please submit your most recent Notice of Assessment (2019) as well as verification that you have applied to, and received any of the following:
Canada Emergency Response Benefit (CERB)
Employment Insurance Benefits
Income Assistance or Indigenous Social Assistance

Canada Emergency Student Benefit (CESB)
KidSport Manitoba East uses Statistics Canada Low Income Cut-off guidelines to determine financial eligibility for grants.
