New Funding Opportunities for Eligible Member Clubs
There are two new funding opportunities for eligible Gymnastics WA member clubs, building upon the recently announced Gymnastics WA Rebooting Gymnastics Grant.
Targeted Participation Program (TPP) - Department of Local Government, Sport & Cultural Industries - Up to $5,000
TPP projects are required to increase participation in physical activity and encourage pathways into community sport or active recreation. These opportunities should also provide a platform to promote the importance of healthy lifestyles and create healthy environments to support participation, with a focus on evidenced based low participation groups.
Projects that can provide evidence of collaboration with other community service providers and/or sport and community groups are encouraged to apply.
In 2020/21, Category 3 will be available as follows:
Value: $5,000 fixed per annum
Grant application open: Monday, 24 August 2020
Grant application closes: 5.00pm, Friday 25 September 2020
All information on the program can be found on the department’s website: https://www.dlgsc.wa.gov.au/funding/sport-and-recreation-funding/targeted-participation-program/targeted-participation-program-grant-guidelines
Active Kids Grant - Australian Sports Foundation - Up to $10,000
The Active Kids Grants aim to provide every child with the active childhood they deserve! By helping your club with additional funds to supply them with the equipment they need, we can help increase junior participation to your club.
In light of the devastating events Australian Sport has experienced this year, the grants will be focusing on volunteer run grassroots and community clubs and will provide funding for kit and equipment for with members aged under 20, with priority given to clubs in disadvantaged and/or rural communities.
Applications will be accepted from 1 September to 30 September with suggested grant values up to $10,000 to fund your projects that will acquire sporting equipment, sporting kits and uniforms.
All information can be found here: https://grants.sportsfoundation.org.au/prog/active_kids_grant/
Gymnastics WA encourages eligible member clubs to apply for these grants and welcomes the opportunity to support their application/s.
