If your organization offers recreational, sports, arts and/or cultural activities to children and youth, or you know of some non-profit organization that offers these opportunities to children and youth, you will want to know about this great opportunity.
You Could be Eligible for a New Subsidy
United Way’s UpStart recently received funding from the provincial government to run a two-year pilot project. This initiative lowers the cost to rent school facilities during evenings, and weekends to groups that offer recreational activities for children and youth. Calgary Recreation books schools for community use on behalf of the Calgary Board of Education and the Calgary Catholic School District. Twenty-five schools have been identified to participate in this pilot.
Your group may be eligible to receive a rental rate subsidy. Application criteria are as follows:
• The program increases recreation (physical activity, drama, dance, art, music) for children and youth by offering a new opportunity or by expanding the number of kids that can participate in an existing program.
• The program has appropriate adult supervision consistent with the activity.
• The program helps children and youth develop skills and confidence.
• The program responds to the needs and interests of children and youth living in the community.
• The service provider identifies participants willing to take part in a survey or interview to evaluate the results of the program.
• The service provider meets The City of Calgary’s terms and conditions for insurance, deadlines for cancellations, and permit requirements.
**NB – Additional schools have been added**
