The Prairie Central District will continue to accept applications by mail, email or fax for the ICSDGP. 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 Crystal Longman at firstname.lastname@example.org or 306.746.9884
Thank you in advance for your understanding. The Prairie Central District remains committed to working with communities and organizations to ensure that when programming resumes, children and youth will have quality programs to enjoy.
The purpose of the Indigenous Community Sport Development Grant Program (ICSDGP) is to provide greater sport participation and development opportunities for Indigenous youth in Saskatchewan. The program will assist and support the implementation of organized community sport programs to increase sport opportunities for youth in the Indigenous community, specifically in urban, rural, on-reserve, isolated and northern communities.
The Indigenous Community Sport Development grant will focus on communities and building their capacity to offer quality, organized sport programs for Indigenous youth. The goals of the initiative are:
- Increase the number of Aboriginal youth participating in organized sport programs in Saskatchewan;
- Increase the numbers of volunteers available to organize and assist with sport teams and clubs;
- Encourage communities to work cooperatively with other communities or sport groups to organize leagues, tournaments and competitions;
- Provide resources to assist communities with introducing new, organized sport programs that include coaching or leadership components.
