Ministry funding to be distributed to OVA Clubs

By Ontario Volleyball Association, 04/29/22, 7:00AM EDT


On March 8, 2022, the Ontario Government announced $20 million for Multi-Sport Organizations and the 63 recognized Provincial Sport Organizations to support their member community sport clubs that provide access to sports.  This funding must be distributed by May 31, 2022, and the amounts distributed to the Clubs have to be reported back to the Ministry of Heritage, Sport, Tourism and Culture Industries by June 30, 2022.

The OVA has been given funding of $559,000 from the Ministry that will be distributed to OVA Clubs that were registered for the 2021-2022 season.  This funding is to help OVA registered Clubs cover the additional costs of running sport programs during the pandemic.  Due to the guidelines and timelines assigned by the Ministry, this funding will only apply to OVA member Clubs for their operations over the 2021-2022 season.

The funding amount per Club will be a total of the following:

  • $1,000 per OVA Registered Club plus;
  • Ontario Championships Travel Subsidy, if club/teams qualify;
  • The balance of funds will be prorated based on the number of participating teams at Ontario Championships 2022.

The amounts calculated for participating teams will be based on registered teams in the OVA MRS database for the 2022 Ontario Championships.
