Supporting Better Sport And Recreation Facilities

Victor P Taffa

Sport and Recreation Major Grants Program provides assistance to organisations that provide sport and physically active recreation opportunities for Tasmanians, Minister for Sport and Recreation Jacquie Petrusma said.

“Hodgman Government is committed to supporting the development of high quality and well-planned sport and recreation facilities throughout the state.”

Better facilities increase opportunities for all Tasmanians to participate in sport, recreation and physical activity.

State Government encourages all Tasmanians to participate daily in sport, recreation and physical activity, as we work towards our Healthy Tasmania goal of being the healthiest state and having the lowest rate of obesity in Australia by 2025.

“Sport and Recreation Major Grants Program provides grants of between $15,000 and $80,000 to assist with major equipment purchases and the development/improvement of facilities or playing surfaces.” Minister Petrusma said.

Applications for grants under the 2018-19 Sport and Recreation Major Grants Program open on Monday 2 July 2018 and must be received by 12 noon on Thursday, 1 November 2018.
