NSW SPORT AND RECREATION GRANTS NOW OPEN

NSW SPORT AND RECREATION GRANTS NOW OPEN

10 March 2011

The Communities NSW Sport and Recreation grants are now open, Thomas George The Nationals Member for Lismore said today.

Mr George said sporting groups in the electorate are strongly encouraged to submit applications for the Sport and Recreation grant.

"The program is designed to assist with funding for the development of local and regional level sport and recreation facilities while also increasing the availability, standard and quality facilities in NSW.

"Over the years, many sporting groups in the electorate have benefited from this grant," Mr George said.

Mr George said applications for the Sport and Recreation program close on 15 April 2011, giving people ample time to place an application.

"The grant is opened to NSW incorporated, community based not-for-profit organisations and NSW Local Government Authorities operating under the Local Government Act (1993).

"The level of funding available ranges from $500 to $200,000 and all applications must be submitted via the online system.
