The State Government is inviting sports and recreation clubs to apply for $2000 grants from the COVID-SAFE Active Clubs Kickstart Program.

Sport Minister Stirling Hinchliffe said the Kickstart Program would help not-for-profit clubs with the cost of new equipment, training or operational expenses.

“The COVID-SAFE Active Clubs Kickstart Program offers a hand-up to buy sporting equipment or help with the cost of electricity, water or ground maintenance,” Mr Hinchliffe said.

“Clubs could also receive $2000 to train coaches in latest techniques to keep teams firing or support volunteer treasurers with the tools they need to grow their club’s finances for the future.

“The Active Clubs Kickstart Program is designed to help volunteers build resilience and capability to ensure local sporting and recreation clubs remain at the heart of their community’s COVID recovery.”

Mr Hinchliffe said Round 1 of Active Clubs Kickstart in 2020 delivered $7.65 million to 3828 clubs and organisations to help them get through the pandemic.

“The Palaszczuk Government also rolled out a State-wide survey with more than 1200 responses identifying resources for volunteers as one the highest priorities for clubs,” Mr Hinchliffe said.

“We’ve listened and we’re helping clubs and volunteers with the tools they need for the work they do in their communities.”

Applications are open until May 5.
