Community sport organisations can now score a major funding boost, with applications open for the NSW Government’s Local Sport Grant Program.

Parliamentary Secretary for the Central Coast Adam Crouch said the program provides grants up to $10,000, with up to $50,000 available in each NSW electorate, including Terrigal.


“Community sporting clubs run off the hard work and dedication of volunteers. These cash injections will help our local sporting clubs upgrade their facilities and boost participation,” Mr Crouch said.


“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 and First Lap Swim voucher program.


“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.


“A variety of initiatives have successfully received funding in previous rounds, including the purchase of a new dragon boat trolley for the Deepwater Dragon Boat Club, a new set of lawn bowls and coaching aid equipment to assist elderly and disabled bowlers at Terrigal Bowling Club, pop-up goals and female uniforms for Kincumber Roos Football Club and the resurfacing of basketball courts at Breakers Indoor Stadium.”


The program will focus on initiatives that enable more people to enjoy the benefits of playing sport, regardless of their age, gender, background, or ability.


Applications close Monday 21 November. More information is available online.
