Sporting groups share $50,000 in grants
6th December 2018
Very happy to announce that 11 local sporting clubs have secured funding in the Office of Sport's 2018-19 Local Sport Grant Program.
These grants are used for improvements to local grounds and facilities, or for equipment, training or the development of sport.
Sport and active recreation deliver many personal and community benefits including the development of self-esteem, maintaining health and fitness, nurturing talented athletes and contributing to an individual's enjoyment of life.
Sport and recreation also contributes to a range of priorities including tackling childhood obesity and building safer communities.
