AASF considers the social and economic barriers facing the athlete’s family when determining the eligibility for funding. Applicants must be a resident of Brantford, the County of Brant or Six Nations municipalities. Guidelines are based on the number of children your family is eligible to claim as stated on your Child Care Benefit notice and whether other assistance has already been provided for the current registration period.
