Last chance to apply for sports grants

Clarence and Richmond Valley sports clubs only have until October 6 to apply for a NSW Government grant of between $250 and $20,000, Clarence MP Chris Gulaptis has emphasised.

“The NSW Government has allocated a total of up to $50,000 for clubs in the Clarence and Richmond Valleys and of course I’d like to see as many applications as possible,” Mr Gulaptis said.

“I’d especially encourage female teams to apply since only one in three girls are active through a sports club, compared to 50 per cent of boys.”

Incorporated, not-for-profit sport clubs are eligible to apply.

The grants will cover initiatives such as new sport programs, community events, facility upgrades or projects that improve participation in sport.
