The Saskatchewan Lotteries Community Grant Program is a partnership among Sask Sport Inc., SaskCulture Inc. and the Saskatchewan Parks and Recreation Association Inc.and assists in the development of sport, culture and recreation programs by providing funds to non-profit community organizations operated by volunteers.
The goal of this program is to get people involved in sport, culture and recreation activities by enabling communities to address the needs of local residents. If the community grant is more than $2,000, a portion of the total grant must be used for programs aimed at increasing participation for under-represented populations such as indigenous people, seniors, women, the economically disadvantaged, persons with a disability, and single-parent families. The under-represented requirement can be met by including these populations in regular programs and/or by creating special programs to meet their needs.
Organizations that are eligible to receive funding include: municipal governments (city, town, village, organized hamlet or rural municipality), Indian band councils or northern settlements. These authorities distribute funds to local non-profit, volunteer, community groups to provide programs.
