Physical Activity Grant Call For Submissions!

Pin It

Recreation NL is currently looking for submissions for Teen Physical Activity Grants through the
ParticipACTION Teen Challenge. These grants will be for teens 13-19 years of age to assist them and
their peers in getting more physically active.

Two Types of Grants to Apply for:
1) Ongoing – At least once a week for four weeks (up to $500.00)
2) One Time – A one-time event such as a festival or tournament (up to $250.00)

Grants can be used towards the purchase of equipment, rental fees, transportation costs, leadership
opportunities and/or nutritional snacks. All applications must be submitted online at
https://www.participaction.com/teen-challenge/

Tips for creating a program or event and securing funding copy

Deadline for applications is Friday, May 1, 2015. Please note it will take up to 3 weeks to notify all
applicants about their submission. Unfortunately, due to the number of grants we receive and the amount
of funding we have per quarter we are not able to fund all submissions. Those programs/events that are unique,
reach a variety of teens, show involvement from the youth with regards to ownership/leadership with the
program/event, is a new activity or idea, etc will be given preference to those that do not possess these items.

If you have any questions regarding this grant please contact Ashley at ashleymercer@recreationnl.com or
call (709) 729-0980.
