Sask Lotteries Community Grant Program

Any school/community association can apply for a grant from their own Town/City/Band office and/or Recreation Board to host a Sepak Takraw Clinic and get the sport going in your school/community. Funds come from a partnership between Sask Sport Inc., SaskCulture Inc. and the Saskatchewan Parks and Recreation Association Inc. and is for assisting in the development of sport, culture and recreation programs within a community.

If the community grant is more than $2,000, a portion of the total grant must be used for programs aimed at increasing participation for under-represented populations such as indigenous people, seniors, women, the economically disadvantaged, persons with a disability, and single-parent families. The under-represented requirement can be met by including these populations in regular programs and/or by creating special programs to meet their needs.

Organizations that are eligible to receive funding include: municipal governments (city, town, village, organized hamlet or rural municipality), Indian band councils or northern settlements. These authorities distribute funds to local non-profit, volunteer, community groups (schools) to provide programs.

Community Grants are determined by population with the minimum grant being $250 for southern communities and $500 for northern communities. Inter-community co-operation is extremely important in the development of effective programs. Funds can be allocated to another jurisdiction to enhance access to high-quality programs as long as no outstanding grant follow-ups exist. 

Applications from communities MUST be postmarked on or before FEBRUARY 28. Applications received after the deadline will not be considered.

For more information, please contact your local municipal government or band office.
