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 2021-22 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 2021/22, 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 £300 per individual or £500 for a club, towards no more than 50% of the costs.
