Local sports grants now open

Local community sports organisations can now apply for funding under the NSW Government’s Local Sport Grant Program.

Member for Oatley, Mark Coure said that this program would allow local clubs of all sporting codes to benefit from the NSW Government’s increased investment into community sports.

“Many local clubs have benefitted from Local Sport Grant funding in the past to purchase new equipment, upgrade their facilities and develop skills acquisition programs.” Mr Coure said.

“Sport is often at the heart of many families in our local community and these grants will go a long way to supporting the numerous grass-roots clubs throughout our local area”.

Grants of up to $10,000 are available with a total of $50,000 allocated for each electorate across NSW.

Minister for Sport, Alister Henskens said community sporting clubs run off the hard work and dedication of volunteers. These cash injections will help community sporting clubs upgrade their facilities and boost participation.

“We want more people playing sport in our State, which is why we’re growing participation and helping people boost their budget through programs like the Active Kids voucher program.” Minister Henskens said.

“The Local Sport Grant Program is about giving community sporting clubs a boost, by investing in clubs to improve facilities, enhance accessibility and hold new and exciting events and development programs that engage people of all ages and abilities”.

Applications close Monday 21 November. More information can be found via:
