Applications for the 2020 Para Sport Jumpstart Fund are now open, the Canadian Paralympic Committee and Canadian Tire Jumpstart Charities announced on Tuesday, and community and sport organizations across the country are encouraged to apply for the chance to receive funding assistance. Grants are awarded to support organizations with Para sport programming that removes barriers for children with disabilities to participate in physical activity and sport.

A joint initiative between the CPC and Jumpstart, the goal of the Para Sport Jumpstart Fund is to create greater opportunities for accessible sport and play at the grassroots and developmental levels. Funding can go towards various elements of enhancing an organization’s Para sport offerings, such as equipment, staffing, recruitment, and additional programming.

The application deadline for the 2020 Para Sport Jumpstart Fund is March 15, 2020. For more information and to apply, please CLICK HERE.
