The city is accepting applications from eligible local organizations for the 2023 Recreation and Sport Community Grant, which provides funding to enhance access to recreation and sport opportunities in Barrie.

Organizations can apply for funding in two categories: programming to support new or innovative recreation and sport opportunities, or capital improvement projects. For either funding category, applicants must be an incorporated not-for-profit organization, a community association operating as a not-for-profit or a registered charitable organization. For-profit enterprises may apply in collaboration with an eligible not-for-profit provided they receive no direct financial benefit.

There is no prescribed dollar amount limit on application requests. Applications will be accepted until March 31, 2023, and grants will be awarded no later than April 21, 2023. Interested organizations can learn more about the grant and apply via
