What is a Grant?

KidSport provides grants to kids (18 years and younger) from families facing financial barriers so they can participate in registered sport programs and experience the lifelong benefits of a season of sport. KidSport CBRM / Victoria provides grants of up to $300 per eligible kid, per year (January 1st - December 31st)  towards sport registration fees. 

Do you need equipment in order to play? Let us know! If the child needs equipment, we will provide a voucher so you can get the right gear from our equipment partner Rudderham’s Source for Sports. Grants are intended to be used for sport registration and equipment fees; travel and competition fees are not eligible for funding.

Eligibility Requirements

KidSport CBRM / Victoria uses a Notice of Assessment, an endorsement from the Department of Community Services or an endorsement from Indigenous Social Development to determine financial eligibility for grants. 

If applying with a Notice of Assessment (one for each parent/guardian in the household) please ensure your total income does not exceed the cut offs listed below for your family size:

2 person family - $32,899

3 person family - $40,455

4 person family - $49,106

5 person family - $55,695

6 person family - $62,814
