COMMUNITY SPORTS GRANT APPLICATIONS EXTENDED

Wednesday, 17 February 2016

MEMBER for Northern Tablelands Adam Marshall today announced applications for NSW Government grants to help local sports groups across the state have been extended to the end of February.

 

Mr Marshall said the program aimed to increase regular and on-going participation in sport and he was pleased the application date had been extended by two weeks.

 

“I’d like to encourage local sporting clubs from across the region to apply for funding from the State Government’s Local Sport Grant Program which has now been extended and will close on 29 February,” Mr Marshall said.

 

“Sport is incredibly important for health and wellbeing and in country NSW it also plays a role in bringing people in the community together for social occasions.

 

“Whether it be funding towards training programs to secure more volunteer coaches or helping with that much-needed change room or amenities block upgrade, these grants are designed to encourage more people to stay active.”

 

The Local Sport Grant Program will see up to $50,000 in grants distributed to local sporting clubs and groups in all 93 NSW electorates.

 

There are four project types within the Program:

  • Sport club development
  • Community sport events
  • Sport access
  • Facility development and capital equipment

 

Applications close Monday, 29 February 2016 at 5pm.

 

For more information on how to apply and to access the online application system, visit sportandrecreation.nsw.gov.au/clubs/grants or phone 13 13 02.
