Coffs Coast sporting groups can apply for grants to help remove barriers to participation, purchase equipment and improve facilities, under the NSW Government’s $4.6 million Local Sport Grants Program.

Member for Coffs Harbour Gurmesh Singh said the funding opportunities will provide a welcome lift to our local sporting organisations.

“I know how important sport is to people right across the Coffs Coast, especially as the state emerges from lockdown,” Mr Singh said.

“These grants will help local clubs increase participation by addressing barriers, delivering sports development programs and upgrading equipment and facilities.”

Minister for Sport Natalie Ward said the grants will help to support the health, social and economic wellbeing of communities.

“Sport brings communities together and goes far beyond the physical benefits – it strengthens social networks and can be a vehicle for skills development and job creation,” Mrs Ward said.

“As we return to community sport, this funding will support projects of grassroots sporting clubs which are at centre of many local communities.”

Successful clubs can receive funding of up to $20,000, with up to $50,000 available for each electorate throughout NSW.

Applications are now open and close at 1pm Friday, 19 November.
