The Ontario Sport and Recreation Communities Fund (OSRCF) is a grant program that supports a vision of getting and keeping Ontarians active in community sport, recreation and physical activity. The fund:
- increases opportunities for participation in sport and recreation by developing new programs or increasing access to existing programs to encourage individuals to become more active and keep those who are, engaged throughout their lives
- supports implementation of physical literacy as a foundation for lifelong physical activity among individuals enabling them to make healthier activity choices
- strengthens the community sport and recreation sector by providing training in areas such as coaching, youth development, and volunteer development to provide enhanced service and quality programming.
Through the support of projects that deliver high-quality programs and policies, the OSRCF provides Ontarians with more opportunities to become physically active, including groups who experience barriers to participating and those who are traditionally less active.
The program supports projects of one or two years in length, at both the Local/Regional and Provincial levels. Deadline for local / regional projects is Thursday, February 20, 2014 at 5:00 pm EST. For more information, visit www.grants.gov.on.ca.
