Application Guidelines

 

 

Guidelines for the Spring Release of the 2016 Equipment Grant Program are as follows:

Eligibility

All First Nations, Métis Chartered Communities and Friendship Centres are eligible to apply. In addition, some provincial not-for-profit organizations that deliver aboriginal health promotion programs will be eligible to apply. Due to limited funds, not all applications will be selected.

Grant

Grants will range from $500 to $1,000. The funds must be used to purchase sport, recreation, or physical activity equipment. Under the 2016 program, applications that demonstrate shared use of equipment, a large number of people benefiting from use and easy access, safe storage of equipment and community need will rank highest within the application evaluation process.

 

 

Jerseys and apparel, and large single user equipment are generally not considered under the program. If there are questions on what type of equipment is most appropriate for the program, please contact Megan Boddy.

Application Deadline

 

 

All applications (including official purchase quotes or statements from a retailer, supplier or distributor) must be received on or before

5 p.m. (PST), Friday, Feb. 19. Successful applicants will be notified in March.

 

Final Report

All grant recipients will be required to complete and submit a final report. The report must include all original equipment purchase receipts. The report form will be provided by the Partners Council.
