Helping Tasmanian sporting clubs bounce back from COVID-19

The Tasmanian Liberal Government acknowledges the impact of COVID-19 and the effects it’s had on sporting clubs due to spectator restrictions, loss of revenue, postponements and cancellations of games and events. 

I’m pleased to announce that applications for the 2021-22 Sport and Recreation Equipment Grants Program are now open. 

The Program offers financial assistance to assist with the purchase of additional or replacement equipment for the benefit of sporting clubs. 

The equipment must assist the organisation to deliver sport or recreation activities, replace or upgrade existing equipment or minor fixed infrastructure, ensure the safety of activities, or improve the club’s ability to conduct operations. 

The Program will provide grants between $2,000 and $25,000, and applicants are required to contribute at least 20 per cent of the total project cost.

The Program opens today and closes on November 10 2021.
