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 Newfoundland & Labrador provides grants of up to $300 per eligible kid, per year (January 1st - December 31st)  towards sport registration and equipment fees. 

Grants are intended to be used for sport registration and equipment fees; travel and competitions are not eligible for funding.

Eligibility Requirements

KidSport Newfoundland & Labrador uses Statistics Canada Low Income Cut-offs to determine financial eligibility for grants provided through the Provincial Fund. You may also have your application authorized from the Department of Advanced Education and Skills, or you may provide a cheque stub from your family’s most recent Income Support Payment.

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

How Do I Apply?

  1. Find a sport program your kid would like to join and sign up. Let the program’s administrators know you will be applying for KidSport funding.
  2. To view a list of eligible sport programs visit https://sportnl.ca/find-a-sport/
  3. Apply online or use the paper application form - be sure to complete all sections of the application, as incomplete applications take much longer to process, and can cause delays in receiving your grant.
