For 2016, CORA will again be offering grants to its members. There are three main grants; the Travel Grant, the Repair, Maintenance and Equipment (RME) grant and the Clinic/Education Grant.

The Travel grant is open to member clubs who trailer OC6s to CORA Races. This grant is available for all CORA races and official trailers (not car toppers) and is only available for OC6 transportation.

The RME grant is open to member clubs. This grant is designed to assist clubs with their operations related to their club infrastructure, repairs, safety requirements and the development of their club programs. Note: it is not for the purchase, either in whole or part, of canoe hulls.

The clinic grant is open to member clubs who wish to bring in a coach to host a CORA sanctioned “clinic”. The topics of the clinic are open and we will help clubs, if they need it, find a coach, and advise them on what they need to know. The goal of the grant is to defray costs of the clinic in terms of the per-head cost to paddlers.

Education grants that are open to Individual CORA members who are looking to develop their coaching skills and contribute to their member clubs in a coaching capacity. Although the club sponsors the applicants, this grant goes to the individual CORA member to help defray the costs of their coaching education. This grant is limited to NCCP accredited training. If NCCP certification can be shown, only then will other training credits be considered.

All the grants have application criteria, rules, deadlines and limits on spending. Please read the applications and criteria carefully prior to applying. Grant forms are available from the CORA Forms section of the CORA website. Questions can be directed to
