Funding applications open for grassroots sport across NSW

Local sports clubs and associations are set to receive a funding boost to assist with ongoing participation in sport and active recreation in the Liverpool region, with applications now open for the Local Sport Grant Program.

State Member for Holsworthy, Melanie Gibbons MP, said applicants can access funding for a range of projects including sport access initiatives and facility upgrades, with up to $50,000 available for projects in every electorate across NSW.

“At a time when we are all navigating through the impacts of COVID-19, the Local Sport Grant Program will provide a significant boost for our sporting groups, with grants ranging from $500 to $15,000 for successful projects,” Ms Gibbons said.

“We know that sport is the lifeblood in local communities and their volunteers work hard to provide opportunities for their residents to get active and experience some normality during this pandemic,” Mr Lee said.
