Regional sporting groups will share in $622,500 as part of the Liberal National Government’s Regional Organisational Sustainability Program.

Sport and Recreation Minister Mia Davies said the funding helped sporting associations and peak bodies to create active regional communities.

“Regional sporting groups are essential in building stronger and more vibrant communities.” Ms. Davies said.

“This funding ensures grassroots sporting groups are sustainable for their members and that all West Australians have access to quality sport and recreation opportunities.”

Organisations benefiting from this funding round include

  • Broome Touch Football Association,
