Community Sport Development Grants

Funding support for athletic
development opportunities

We've reformatted our grants application process. We now have fewer forms with selectable categories in those forms.

Sport Manitoba’s Sport Development Grant Program is mainly focused around the impact that these grants will have at the Active Start, FUNdamentals, Learn to Train, Train to Train and Train to Compete stages within the Sport For Life – Long-term Athlete Development framework.

Sport Manitoba is able to help our community sport partners with financial assistance for a variety of sport development opportunities through our sport development grants programs.
