Before and After School Recreation Program Grants

Grant applications are now closed.

Thanks to funding from the Provincial Government, BCRPA was able to offer subsidies totaling $490,000 to communities throughout British Columbia to provide new and/or expanded spaces for before and after school recreation programs, as well as to build local capacity and program legacy (i.e. equipment for continued use). Grants of up to $1,500 per program per cycle were made available to organizations wishing to expand existing spaces or initiate new before or after school recreation programs for children in the community.

The subsidies supported before and after school recreation programs that focused on physical activity, connecting to nature, outdoor play, and engaging in culture, sports and the arts.

In addition to program funding, this initiative also provided training for program leaders, supervisors and managers. Funds did not support lunch hour or non-instructional day programming.
