The Province of BC continues to invest and fund event hosting through the Hosting BC grant program to facilitate economic and community development brought forth through notable sporting events, taking place between August 1st, 2018 and October 31, 2019.
Eligible applicants are invited to apply for Hosting BC funding of up to $35,000 depending on the type of event (see full program guidelines, Appendix 2, for eligibility).
Who can apply?
Applications may be submitted by a not-for-profit organization that is operating as a:
- community organization, club or association;
- BC municipality, regional district, other local government body or first nation;
- federally or provincially registered society; or
- recognized university or college.
The Hosting BC grant opens for applications roughly every 4 months with eligible event dates shifting accordingly for each intake. As such, eligible events may have multiple opportunities to apply. However, once funding is granted, an event will not be eligible for any further funding by applying again. We encourage all applicants to apply as soon as event details are known.
