TASMANIAN GRANTS PROGRAM
Grants for Tasmanian Good Sports clubs, funded by the Tasmanian Government, are now open.
Exclusive to accredited Good Sports clubs in Tasmania, the grant is designed to help your club improve the health of your members and embed the Good Sports program in your club by providing access to education, resources and equipment. The grant will help your club inspire a healthier sporting community. A detailed list of what’s available can be found below.
We recognise that administering a club can be a tough job at times. We hope that this funding will continue to help build that fantastic club culture that everyone wants to be a part of and that you have strived so hard to achieve.
Applications are open until 18 October 2019, and it’s easy to apply.
