$10 million grants for programs encouraging more women in sport

Hundreds of sport clubs and organisations in NSW are set to benefit from more than $10 million in grants to encourage more female athletes into sport programs.

Women’s sport is the fastest growing area of many codes and we are now seeing more big name sponsors and media networks screening events in prime time. But more needs to be done, including cultivating participation at a grass roots level. Clubs and organisations can apply for state grants of up to $20,000 under the Local Sport Grant Program and $50,000 under the Sport Development Grant Program for new sport programs, community and nationwide events, facility upgrades or projects that improve participation in sport. Grants are open until October 6. For information visit sportandrecreation.nsw.gov.au/clubs/grants or call 13 13 02.
