Community Sport Program Development Fund

The Community Sport Program Development (CSPD) Fund, funded by the Province of British Columbia, makes community sport more accessible to people of all abilities. CSPD Funding is awarded to sport programs delivered by non-profit organizations, which include local and provincial sport organizations, municipalities, and Aboriginal communities.

Eligible applicants are invited to apply for funding of up to $3,000 for new and expanded programs that directly support new sport participation opportunities in their communities in one of two grant streams – Programming for General Population or Programming for Under-represented Groups.


Who can apply?

  • Not-for-profit clubs and associations that directly deliver organized sport programs in their community
  • Municipalities or Community Centres
  • Aboriginal bands or community associations
  • Provincial Sport Organizations (only in the Programming for Under-represented Groups category)

IMPORTANT: Only one application per organization will be accepted. Applicants based outside of British Columbia are NOT eligible to apply.


Grants for Under-represented Groups are intended to support individuals who face barriers to participating in sport. Those from under-represented groups, including women and girls, persons with disabilities (congenital, acquired, visible, invisible, physical, intellectual, cognitive and sensory), those identifying as LGBTQI2S, marginalized youth, Indigenous People, Socio-economically disadvantaged, newcomers to Canada, those living in rural, remote, and isolated regions, and older adults, are encouraged to apply.
