The Government of Canada, as a part of Canada's COVID-19 Economic Response Plan, has created the Federal Emergency Fund which has allocated funds to Provincial Sport Organizations. Baseball Manitoba, in support of it's member associations, has developed grant opportunities with this funding for associations whom have been and will continue to be negatively impacted by the COVID-19 Pandemic. 2021 promises to be a year filled with uncertainties and we want associations to thrive and players to play!. Grants of $500-$1500 will be available to associations and leagues who offer and execute baseball programming in 2021. Eligible associations must have been active members of Baseball Manitoba within the past 3 years. New associations may be considered, if appropriate. Eligible expenses include:
- Sanitizing Supplies
- Revenue Loss due to fundraising campaigns or lost sponsorship
- Recruitment Endeavors (mail/email, printing, ads, etc.)
- Equipment costs (baseballs, bats, catcher's gear, etc.)
- Other related expenses
Member associations must complete the application form, by March 31, to be considered eligible.
