The state’s sporting clubs and organisation have until the end of the month to apply for $3000 grants to assist with hygiene and equipment costs.
Many sporting clubs and organisations have been hit hard by the coronavirus pandemic, due to cancelled activities and crowd restrictions which have impacted fund-raising and revenue streams.
The state government through the first stage of its COVID-19 Sport and Recreation Grants Program provided sporting organisations grants of up to $150,000 to assist with employment costs over a six-month period.
