Recreational Projects Program

The Recreational Projects Program provides funding assistance to projects that sustain and contribute to the growth of the arts, sport and recreation within Yukon for the benefit and enjoyment of Yukon people in the following areas:

  • amateur level sports, physical fitness activities and recreation; and
  • performing, visual and literary arts.

The program strives to improve the quality of life for all Yukon people through participation or availability of art, sport and recreation in their communities. The Recreational Projects Program is application driven with two intakes; April 15 and October 15. Applications for major projects are only accepted at the October 15th intake and applicants are only eligible to receive major project funding every two years.

  **This program is currently under review, please contact Lotteries Yukon prior to submitting an application. **
