Community Development Grants
Stronger Communities. Stronger Canada.
Our Community Development Grants have two funding streams: Program Support and Operational Support. Grants must help organizations develop or sustain sports and recreation programming for kids between the ages of 4-18 in financial need or youth with disabilities between the ages of 4-25.
Programming Support: Grants are awarded to help organizations develop or sustain the delivery of sport or physical activity-based programs.
Operational Support: Grants are awarded to help organizations build their capacity to provide more inclusive, equitable, safe sport participant experiences.
While organizations can apply more than once within the same application intake period, the requests must be clearly justified and not be dependent on funding from another Jumpstart Community Development Grant application. Funding is determined on the quality of each application and overall demand.Apply Online
