Projects which focus on increasing participation in sport through events, development programs and facilities are the focus of the latest round of the NSW Government’s Local Sport Grant Program.
Member for Terrigal Adam Crouch said up to $50,000 is available to sport clubs in the Terrigal electorate to help make their ideas a reality.
“We know sport has great health, social and economic advantages and the NSW Government is looking to strengthen our local sporting communities through this funding boost,” Mr Crouch said.
“Sport goes far beyond the physical benefits. It boosts social networks and can also help develop skills and create jobs.
“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.”
Minister for Sport Natalie Ward said the NSW Government funded over 930 projects across the State through the last round of the Local Sport Grant Program.
“This funding will support projects at our grassroots sporting clubs which are driving participation opportunities, so that more people across NSW can enjoy the benefits of being involved in sport,” Mrs Ward said.
Successful clubs can receive funding of up to $20,000, with up to $50,000 available for each electorate in NSW.
Applications are open now and will close on Friday, 19 November.
