Aboriginal Community Sport Development Grant (ACSDG)

The Aboriginal Community Sport Grant provides funding for greater sport participation and development opportunities for Aboriginal youth in Saskatchewan. The program assists and supports the implementation of organized community sport programs to increase sport opportunities for Aboriginal youth. Funding can be awarded up to $5,000, per program.

Applications are accepted April 1 to November 15 (deadline extended for 2020) each year or until the funding pool has been exhausted. Programs and funds must be completed by March 31st.

If mailing the application, please use an Express Post envelope (or similar) and keep the receipt for tracking purposes. If emailing the application, we will send you an acknowledgement of receipt email when opening the application.

Applications must be received BEFORE the project begins. Please remember applications for past/existing projects/activities will be declined.

In light of the recent recommendations to postpone all sport programming throughout the province in response to COVID-19, Sask Sport and South West District remain committed to ensuring that communities and organizations have access to the resources needed to support community sport development for Indigenous children and youth.

The South West District will continue to accept applications via email or fax for the Community Sport Development Grant. However, cheques will not be issued for successful applications until it is safe and recommended for programming to resume.

We will do our best to assist you through this process and any questions or concerns you may have can be directed to any of our staff.

Thank you in advance for your understanding. South West District remains committed to working with communities and organisations to ensure that when programming resumes that children and youth will have quality programs to enjoy.
