APPLICATIONS have opened today for the hugely popular Local Sports Grant Program, local MP Adam Marshall has announced.
“This is an extremely popular grant program for local sporting clubs looking for that little extra cash to complete a project,” Mr Marshall said.
“It is open to all local sporting clubs to upgrade facilities, start a new program, upskill volunteers or hold a community event.
“Local clubs can apply for up to $25,000 to fund fund individual initiatives, with up to $50,000 set aside for the Northern Tablelands electorate,” he said.
Previous successful applicants in the Northern Tablelands have included local Bowling, Rugby, Triathlon, Hockey, Little Athletics and Pony Clubs.
“This program is now in its fourth year and has helped fund new nets for Glen Innes Football Club, training for Boomi Pony Club Volunteers and fencing at Inverell Rugby Club just to name a few of the projects that have been successful.
“For our local Sporting Clubs who are mostly run by dedicated volunteers even a few thousand dollars can dramatically upgrade their facilities, buy much needed equipment or run a course locally.
“I encourage all local sporting groups with a project that they’ve had on the shelf due to a lack of cash to consider applying for this grant.”
The Local Sports Grant Program is now open and will accept applications until 24 August 2018.
