PacificSport Interior BC is providing funding grants to help athletics groups and athletes in need amid the pandemic.
Sports organizations and athletes in the Interior — which includes Golden, Revelstoke, Sicamous, Salmon Arm, Chase, Kamloops, Merritt, Lytton, Lillooet, Savona, 100 Mile House, Clearwater, Barriere, Sun Peaks, the smaller rural communities in between and the Indigenous nations in the region — can apply for the grants.
The first grant will be split between 10 organizations, each of which will receive $2,500. PacificSport Interior BC-registered athletes can apply for the second grant.
“We are thrilled to be able to offer support to local sport groups and athletes as we know many have been hit hard with the pandemic ” PacificSport Interior BC executive director Carolynn Boomer said in a press release. “As a not-for-profit organization, PacificSport Interior BC prides itself on doing whatever we can to support the good people in our sport system and these are two ways we can provide some relief.”
Groups and athletes must submit letters of intent to outline reasoning for pursuing the grants.
The deadline to submit letters of intent is 4 p.m. on Jan. 15. Email applications to email@example.com.
