Cash Boost on Offer for Local Sporting Clubs

A boost to grassroots sports development or upgrades to local sporting facilities on the Northern Beaches are just some of the projects eligible for funding, in the latest round of the NSW Government’s Local Sport Grant Program.

Member for Manly James Griffin said this is another great chance for Northern Beaches sporting clubs, with $4.65 million in grants available across NSW.

“So many sporting clubs have taken the advantage of NSW Government grants over the past few years,” Mr Griffin said.

“If you have a project that will boost training for coaches, promote grassroots sport or enhance existing facilities we encourage you to apply.”

Funding is now available throughout NSW with $85,000 being allocated to electorates which are considered regional drought affected areas and $35,000 has been allocated to all other electorates.

Acting Minister for Sport Geoff Lee said sport and active recreation can help tackle childhood obesity and build safer communities.

“The Local Sport Grant Program is now in its fifth year and provides benefits for social sporting events, the delivery of physical and mental health programs and nurturing the dreams of young talented athletes,” Mr Lee said.

Sport’s important role in helping rural communities struggling through the drought is driving the NSW Government’s latest round of Local Sport Grants.

“With the worst drought on record, increasing pressure on NSW families, sport’s ability to bring communities together has never been more important.”

The Local Sports Grant Program closes on the 25 November 2019.
