REGIONAL SPORTS INFRASTRUCTURE FUND OPEN FOR APPLICATIONS

Tuesday, 7 September 2021

 

NORTHERN Tablelands MP Adam Marshall is urging local councils and the region’s sporting clubs and associations to apply for a share of $46 million in funding available now from round two of the State Government’s Regional Sport Facility Fund.

 

Mr Marshall said the Fund provided grants from $100,000 up to $1 million to eligible sport and recreation organisations and local councils for new and upgraded sports facilities.

 

“This is a great opportunity for our region’s sporting clubs to obtain funding for projects to upgrade and expand existing sporting infrastructure,” Mr Marshall said.

 

“By investing in new and existing sports facilities, we can help more people experience the benefits of participating in sport and active recreation and give a springboard to the next generation of Australian sporting stars

 

“Inclusive projects that encourage the participation of women and girls and people with a disability in sport are also encouraged.

 

“Please don’t miss this chance to secure some cash to upgrade local and regional sports facilities – get your application in right now.”

 

Round 1 of the program resulted in $54 million being awarded to 91 projects across the State, including two in the Northern Tablelands – $350,000 to install lights at the Armidale Netball Association courts and almost $1 million for Moree Plains Shire Council to upgrade its artesian aquatic centre.

 

Eligible projects include lighting, amenity buildings, clubrooms, change rooms and grandstands.

 

Applications are now open and close on 8 October 2021.
