The purpose of this document is to outline the revised policy guidelines governing the disbursement of grants to all stakeholders meeting the qualification

In keeping with the National Sport Policy, the Government of Trinidad and Tobago is committed to providing financial assistance to outstanding athletes, in support of their preparation for, and participation in international competition.

The Policy that guides the EAAP provides financial support for nationals who have attained the qualifying international ranking determined by the Trinidad and Tobago Olympic Committee (TTOC). These policy guidelines were developed through consultation with the TTOC, national sporting organisations and other co-opted interests.

As such, the EAAP speaks to:

  • Athletes who are world-ranked in individual sports
  • Those sports included in Olympic events and programmes
  • Athletes who medal at Olympic Games, World Championships, Commonwealth Games, Senior Pan American Games and Senior Central American and Caribbean Games.

Funding is allocated under the following categories:

  • Athletes ranked in the World Top 10 positions will qualify for the current maximum sum allocation of $250,000.00.
  • Athletes ranked in the World Top 11-40 positions will benefit up to $187,500.00 (75% of the maximum sum).
  • Athletes who medal in the specific Games and Championships may benefit, on a case-by-case basis, from up to $75,000.00 (30% of the maximum sum).
  • The funding will be provided for athletes who undergo a four-year cycle of preparation and training leading up an Olympic year.

The funding is intended to meet the following expenses:

  • Training schedules
  • Coaching fees
  • Nutritional and medical expenses
  • Travel expenses for training
  • Travel expenses for sanctioned competitions and pre-Games tours
  • Accommodation for training
  • Professional expenses

Please note that the procedure to apply for grant funding is being changed and the information on this website will be updated once this process is complete. The information below makes reference to previous documentation:

The Ministry of Sport provides Grant Funding to National Governing Bodies for sport, community groups and individuals in support of their plans, programmes and activities that foster sport development, facilitate athletic performance and engender a spirit of community living.
