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 West provides grants of up to $300 per eligible kid, 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.

Eligibility Requirements

NEW: 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

  • Temporary Wage Top-Up (Low Income Essential Workers)

  • Canada Emergency Student Benefit (CESB)

KidSport uses the Statistics Canada Low Income Cut-off guidelines as a tool to determine which families are eligible for assistance. Exceptions may occur for unique circumstances, but in most cases applications will not be considered if your household gross income is higher than shown in the chart below.
