Community sporting clubs in Broken Hill, and the Barwon electorate, are now able to apply for funding as part of the Local Sport Grant Program.
Up to $20,000 in grants are available to clubs and associations to encourage ongoing, regular participation opportunities in sport. The funds can be used to purchase new equipment, upgrade facilities, and deliver programs.
“Sport is a way of life in the Barwon electorate,” Labor Duty MLC for Barwon, Stephen Lawrence said.
“This program helps our local clubs, which run on the efforts of an army of volunteers and canteen sales, buy vital equipment like uniforms and deliver programs that help more people enjoy the benefits of sport.”
Minister for Sport Steve Kamper said the state government “understands the vital role community sport plays in keeping people healthy, active and socially connected”.
“The program will provide vital funds for community sport to purchase new equipment, improve facilities and deliver programs that enable people of all ages and abilities to participate and enjoy the benefits of sport and active recreation”, he added.
Applications are now open and close on November 27. For more information including guidelines and eligibility follow this link:www.sport.nsw.gov.au/local-sport-grant-program
