The Municipality of Springfield Community Services Department awards grants to various non-profit community groups requiring financial assistance. The intent of this funding is to increase access to recreation programming for all residents in Springfield by reducing barriers to participation and facilitating the delivery of activities/programs that address existing gaps.
Kids First Program
The Springfield Kids First program is a fee subsidy program which provides Springfield residents with lower annual incomes (see chart below), the necessary funds to register for recreation programs in Springfield (up to 50% of total program fees). Springfield believes that participation in recreation programs builds not only healthy residents but healthy communities, while enhancing overall quality of life.
