2011 EQUIPMENT GRANT PROGRAM
The Aboriginal Sport, Recreation and Physical Activity Partners Council (Partners Council) is launching a regionally based Equipment Grant Program that allows First Nations, Métis Chartered Communities and Aboriginal Friendships Centres across British Columbia to apply for funds to purchase sport, recreation and/or physical activity equipment. The equipment will be used by communities/organizations to promote healthy active lifestyles by reducing barriers and increasing access to sport, recreation and physical activity programs for the entire community – from children to elders.The Equipment Grant Program will be delivered through each of the Partner Council’s six Regional Committees, inclusive of the Northwest, Northeast, Interior, Fraser, Vancouver Coastal and Vancouver Island. The Regional Committees will be responsible for evaluating the applications submitted by communities/organizations from within their region and awarding the grants.
Guidelines for the 2011 Equipment Grant Program are as follows:
All First Nations, Métis Chartered Communities and Friendship Centres will be eligible to apply within their region. In addition, some provincial not-for-profit organizations that deliver Aboriginal health promotion programs may be eligible to receive a grant.
Grants of up to $2500 are available. The funds must be used to purchase sport, recreation or physical activity equipment. Under the 2011 program, footwear and some types of apparel will be considered within the application evaluation process.
All applications must be received on or before 5 pm, Friday December 16, 2011. Applications Forms must be submitted by email or fax to the following coordinates:
