Did you know that you may be entitled to a grant from your local authority to enable your child to play sport or take part in leisure activities? As part of the response to the COVID-19 pandemic, children born in the years 2005-2014 who live in households where the adults supporting them have a total income of less than ISK 740,000 per month, on average, in the months of March-July 2020 qualify for such grants.

You can use the sports and leisure activity grant to pay part of the fees for your child to take part in sports such as football, basketball, gymnastics and other sports, and also music lessons or other leisure activities. The project aims to equalize the opportunities of the families with lower incomes to participate in organized sports and leisure activities.
