Sport Clubs Encouraged To Apply For Grants


Canberra sport clubs with junior members are being encouraged to apply for Active Kids grants.

The program aims to reduce barriers to participation, by supporting clubs with funding to pay for things like kit, equipment and uniforms.

Ryan Holloway from the Australian Sports Foundation says the grants can be particularly helpful as more sports resume after lockdowns.

“We’ve got grant values up to $10,000 for sports clubs targeting participants aged 20 years and younger, we’ve got all the information on our website, so clubs can go in there and submit their application,” Holloway said.
