Local Sport Development funding will be available to start or expand community sport opportunities!

The Province of B.C. announced an investment of $100,000 to be distributed through the Local Sport Program Development Fund for 2011-2012. Applications are now being accepted to help local sport, municipalities, Aboriginal and community organizations increase sport opportunities for British Columbians of all ages and abilities.

The Local Sport Program Development Fund provides grants of up to $2,000 for sport programs that aim to increase access to British Columbians. This could include opportunities such as clubs establishing a youth division; a new sport program that requires specialized equipment or coach training; or a club that wants to introduce their sport to local schools.

The deadline for the first application period is 4 pm PST on October 3, 2011.

A second application period will be launched January, 2012.

For further details, please see the program guidelines and application form online at www.2010legaciesnow.com/local_sport_development_fund/.

The Local Sport Development Fund is supported by the Province of B.C. through the Ministry of Community, Sport and Cultural Development.
