$29.7 Million on Offer for Local Sport Clubs
Federal MP Ross Vasta is encouraging local sporting groups in Bonner to take advantage of the Coalition’s Community Sport Infrastructure Grants to secure a share of $29.7 million.

The Community Sport Infrastructure grant program launched last week enables sport and community organisations to apply for grants up to $500,000 to upgrade sporting infrastructure in 2018-19.

Mr Vasta urged local sporting groups to consider projects that would help build participation in physical activity, community partnerships and inclusiveness.

“Sporting facilities are vital for inspiring physical activity and health, but also for building community spirit and pride,” Mr Vasta said.

“I encourage sport and community groups to collaborate and think about projects that could enhance our facilities in the Bonner area. Even the smallest of facility projects can have a big impact on boosting local business, economy, health and social cohesiveness.

“Improving lighting, playing surfaces and accessibility for different ages and genders are just some of the ways sporting facilities can be made safer and more appealing.”

The program will be managed by Sport Australia, the Australian Government’s leading agency for sport and physical activity.

Applications will remain open until September 14 and more information on the Community Sport Infrastructure grant program can be found at https://www.sportaus.gov.au/grants_and_funding/community_sport_infrastructure_grant_program
