Sport and recreation clubs across Lismore have been successful in securing funding from the NSW Government for new equipment, facilities and programs through the Local Sport Grants Program.

Seven sport and recreation clubs will each receive grants in the latest round of funding which sees $4.2 million awarded to sports and recreation clubs across the state.

Member for Lismore, Thomas George said the grants would be used to increase participation, upgrade facilities and equipment and help train coaches and volunteers.

“As Lismore continues to develop as the Regional Sports Hub, the NSW Governments wants to make sure every sports organisation in the electorate has the most up to day facilities possible.”

“These grants will provide essential funds to our local clubs to help increase participation in sport and active recreation and contribute to improved social, health and cultural outcomes,” Mr George said.

Minister for Sport, Stuart Ayres congratulated the grant recipients and said the NSW Government was proud to support a program which improved community health and encouraged participation in sport and recreation.

“These funds will help encourage people in the Tenterfield community, regardless of their age or ability, to get involved in sport and active recreation,” Mr Ayres said.
