Sports grants

Grants are available to support individuals and clubs from Dumfries and Galloway who are taking part in sport.

Funding is usually limited to a maximum of £500 towards no more than 50% of the costs. Awards of up to £1,000 may be granted in exceptional circumstances.

Who can apply

Individuals and clubs who meet the criteria for their local area can apply.

You must be a member of your local sports council to apply if you live in the Stewartry or Wigtownshire and they will decide on whether funding is provided. Applications for funding can't be processed until your membership has been approved. Local councillors make decisions in Annandale and Eskdale and Nithsdale.

We are no longer accepting applications for Nithsdale Sports Grants in 2018/19 as the budget is now fully committed.
