MEMBER for Northern Tablelands Adam Marshall has today reminded local sporting groups across the region to apply for the New South Wales Government’s Sport and Recreation Events Program (SREP), which closes on 24 April 2015.
“This government is committed to assisting sporting groups in hosting quality local, national and international events,” Mr Marshall said.
“The SREP facilitates the type of events that get people excited and involved in sporting matches, whether as supporters or as competitors.
“I encourage local organisations to make use of this fantastic opportunity and get their applications in before April 24.
“The SREP is open to sports organisations looking to stage international, national or community events throughout NSW in the 2015-2016 year.
“Under the SREP eligible organisations may apply for multiple event types, however the maximum available to any one organisation under the program is $30,000 in a financial year.”
Grants are capped at:
- $30,000 for international sporting events;
- $15,000 for national championships; and
- $10,000 for community events
Applicants must also contribute 50% or more to the staging of the event, which may include ‘in kind’ support.
