Nithsdale Sports Grants

Nithsdale Sports Grants are available to support Individuals and Sport Clubs from Nithsdale who are taking part in sport with money allocated to the fund by Nithsdale Area Committee during the 2022-23 financial year.

The Discretionary Budget allocated to Sport Grants is an annual, non-recurring budget which is set and agreed by Elected Members at Nithsdale Area Committee. Nithsdale Active Schools and Community Sport will deliver the initiative for 2022/23, following an invited expression of interest to Third Sector Organisations to administer the grants on behalf of the Council.

Funding is usually limited to a maximum of £200 per individual or £400 for a club, towards no more than 50% of the costs.

Applications will be accepted from individuals (athletes, officials and coaches) who reside within Nithsdale or Nithsdale-based sports clubs affiliated to their national governing body of sport.
