Applications open for sport and recreation funding
The State Government is seeking applications from sports clubs and organisations across the State looking to improve and support their active recreation programs and sporting infrastructure.
Recreation and Sport Minister, Tom Kenyon says grants can be sought through the Community Recreation and Sports Facilities Program (CRSFP) and the Sport and Recreation Development and Inclusion Program (SRDIP).
“The State Government has a strong commitment to support active recreation and sport programs that assist in improving our health and well being,” Mr Kenyon said.
“These funding programs seek to provide South Australians of all ages with greater opportunities to be involved in physical activity.
“The Sport and Recreation Development and Inclusion Program aims to assist eligible organisations to develop and implement state-wide or regional projects which increase sporting activities and improve services in their areas.
“The annual budget for this program is just over $4 million with organisations eligible to apply for funding for up to three years,” Mr Kenyon said.
“Clubs, sporting organisations, schools and councils seeking funding of $200,000 or more to develop sport or recreation facilities are also being encouraged to submit ‘Expression of Interest’ to the Community Sport and Recreation Facilities funding program in 2013-14.
“Organisations that apply and meet the minimum requirements for their projects will then be invited to submit a full funding application in early 2013,” Mr Kenyon said.
Closing date for both programs is Monday, December 17 2012.
