The Saskatchewan Parks and Recreation Association (SPRA) are excited about the reinstatement of the Community Rink Affordability Grant (CRAG), offered in partnership with the Government of Saskatchewan.
CRAG funding will support eligible communities, First Nations, schools and nonprofits with the operation of their indoor skating and curling rinks. A maximum of $2,500 will be available per ice surface to help offset the cost of rink operations, minor capital upgrades or to outfit the facility with COVID-19 related expenditures (such as personal protective equipment).
“We are grateful to the Government of Saskatchewan for recognizing the escalating costs communities are facing in order to operate and maintain their rinks,” said TJ Biemans, Saskatchewan Parks and Recreation Association President. “These facilities are integral to the vitality and wellbeing of our communities, with this funding coming at a time when that has never been more necessary.”
Instructions on how to register for CRAG and the full eligibility details can be found on our website at spra.sk.ca/crag.
Applications will be accepted until March 12, 2021.
