The Durham Sports Commission is charged with creating economic impact through sports, and we’re proud to provide around $100,000 in grants to our local Durham events each year. We’ve associated with events of every scale, and we encourage local event owners to schedule a meeting with our staff prior to submitting their grant application.

Grant applications must be submitted to the DSC staff no later than 45 days prior to the date of the event to be considered for funding. Each grant application will be presented to the Durham Sports Commission Grants and Incentives Committee before a recommendation is made to the entire board of directors. The Durham Sports Commission board will vote on each event and DSC staff will notify the event owner of the outcome. Please submit your grant application to the Durham Sports Commission at
