Local Sport Relief Fund: Now Open for Applications

viaSport and the Province of B.C. are pleased to announce that the Local Sport Relief Fund is now open and accepting applications from eligible organizations until October 16, 2020. 

The B.C. sport community is making a comeback from COVID-19, but not without its challenges. For many non-profit sport organizations, lost revenues have threatened their ability to offer activities and programming in their communities. This funding is designed to provide short-term relief in order to help organizations remain viable and support return to sport efforts across B.C.

Non-profit, local and community sport organizations are invited to apply now for up to $7,500 in funding through this one-time grant to help offset fixed and operating costs. Funding must support administration and operational needs for an eventual return to sport, and new sport programming or initiatives are ineligible.
