Grants to Calgary, Alberta nonprofits, organizations, clubs, leagues, educational institutions, and groups for amateur sports programs. First-time applicants are encouraged to submit a draft before the deadline. Funding is intended for the development of new amateur sports facilities, expanding or renovating existing facilities, or for purchasing sport-related equipment.

Past grants have been awarded to high schools for fitness and weight training equipment, community associations for recreation facilities, elite sports teams for training equipment, and recreational sports groups for facilities and equipment.

Schools: the first grant is limited to a maximum of $20,000 and the second grant is limited to a $10,000 matching grant. Currently, schools are not eligible to apply for a third grant.

Recipients normally have up to two years to expend the grant funds.

Any organization, club, league, educational institution or group can apply if they:

- Have been registered as a non-profit society for three+ years
- Have objectives and programs relating to amateur sport
- Have not received an Amateur Sport Grant in the past three years


- Grants can only be applied to portions of a major project that are sport-related.
- Funds cannot be used toward jerseys.
- Projects must be within Calgary Municipal boundaries or of benefit to Calgary athletes.

It is highly recommended to email a draft of the application for review prior to final submission.

Grants of less than $20,000 will be processed upon completion of the project and receipt of a final report. Grants in excess of $20,000 can be processed on a progressive basis, with documentation being submitted as materials are received and construction proceeds.
