Sports funding boost
The NSW Government is giving $4.6 million for the Local Sports Grants program.
The funding will go towards community sport development and upgrades to local sporting facilities.
Member for Pittwater, Rob Stokes, is encouraging local sporting clubs to apply for funds under the program.
“Community sport is a big part in the physical and mental wellbeing of many Pittwater residents and it’s fantastic it’s recommenced locally after the recent lockdown,” Mr Stokes said.
“These grants are a great opportunity for local clubs to apply for a funding boost and I’m looking forward to seeing this year’s projects.”
The program aims to increase regular, ongoing participation in sport and structured physical activity; remove barriers to participation; help sporting clubs provide quality service to their members; and increase the amount of well-managed facilities in local communities.
