Core funds are provincial funds targeted for events or projects that support sport growth and development. An approved event or project will be open to all qualified participants in your area, not just your club members. The event or project must support the goals of HCBC for developing sport within the province. Clubs are expected to charge participants reasonable registration fees. Money will be released only after a financial report, receipts and an event summary are received by HCBC.
WHO CAN APPLY?
Funding is available to regions, clubs, branches, and affiliates who are members in good standing of HCBC.
Each Club or branch may only submit one application per year.
Clubs, branches or affiliates should be members for at least 12 months prior to applying, however applications from new groups may be considered.
WHEN TO APPLY?
Applications for funding must be received in our office by April 1. Late submissions will not be considered.

The group must show via the budget sheet that they have contributed financially to the project and participants are charged reasonable registration fees for applicable events. Applications must be accompanied by supporting documents such as quotes for equipment purchase or facility upgrades, budget for events, and letters of support from property owners for facility upgrades. Long term lease or use agreements must be in place.
