Grassroots Sport Receives Recovery Package


A $25 million recovery package for the sport and recreation sector has been unveiled, providing a helping hand for grassroots sporting clubs and associations as community sport returns this summer.

Premier Dominic Perrottet said the package would help the sector bounce back after disruption to competitions and activities.

“The COVID lockdown has had a major impact on everyone’s lives, including the more than 30,000 employees and 415,000 volunteers across more than 10,000 sporting clubs and associations throughout the State,” Mr Perrottet said.

The Sport and Recreation Recovery and Community Rebuild Package includes:

  • Up to $12.5 million for grants of up to $1,000 to eligible clubs and associations
  • Up to $7.8 million to support sporting organisations and peak bodies
  • $3.1 million to support participation initiatives focused on areas most affected by restrictions, including south-western Sydney and regional NSW
  • Up to $1 million for grants to support marketing and promotional activities for outdoor and active recreation providers
  • $600,000 to support regional talent pathways in the lead up to the Brisbane 2032 Olympics.

Member for Goulburn Wendy Tuckerman said “This announcement provides a welcome injection of funding for community sport in the region following all the disruption due to COVID-19 restrictions”.
The $1,000 grants will be open for application in November 2021.
