    1. Mileage reimbursement at a rate of $0.50 per kilometre traveled (indicate route travelled on grant application form); and
    2. If applicable, reimbursement of ferry expenses (vehicle, trailer and driver fare only). Note: Does not include fares for transporting paddlers/team members, or other travel expenses such as coffee, meals or accommodation.

  6. Clubs may apply more than once per year.
  7. Reimbursement for travel is up to a maximum of $650 per application (combined limit for mileage reimbursement and ferry expenses).

Note: Monies will be reimbursed and allocated on a first come, first served basis according to the criteria listed above however remain at the discretion of the Board. Clubs are encouraged to reduce duplication of travel expenses by coordinating with other clubs in their region to haul boats and so that the maximum number of clubs benefit from this Grant. When the budget for travel grants is exhausted, there will be no further grants for that racing season. The Board reserves the right to restrict travel grants during the season to ensure that grant money is available for the National Championships.
