Local Sporting Champions
Being an athlete is a big commitment – not only for you, but for your entire family. It can also be a big financial burden on families.
The Local Sporting Champions Grants program is designed to offer some assistance, to help you pursue your sport.
If you are aged between 12 and 18 and are competing, officiating or coaching at a state, national or international sporting event, you may be eligible for a $500 Local Sporting Champions Grant.

Volunteer Grants 2018
The Australian Government is inviting applications via an open process to apply for funding to support volunteers under the Volunteer Grants Activity.
Volunteer Grants aim to support the efforts of Australia’s volunteers. The grants provide small amounts of money that organisations and community groups can use to help their volunteers. The grants form part of the Government’s work to support the volunteers who help disadvantaged Australian communities and encourage inclusion of vulnerable people in community life.
Community Sport Infrastructure 2018
Do the facilities at your local sport or community organisation need upgrading? Improved lighting, upgraded playing surfaces - even the smallest of projects can have the biggest impact!
Applications are now open for Community Sport Infrastructure grants up to $500,000.
Stronger Communities Grants 2018
The latest round of Stronger Communities Funding is open with grants of between $2,500 and $20,000 available for community groups and organisations.
This amazing grant program supports the Federal Government’s commitment to deliver social benefits in communities across Australia.
