Ap­ply for grants

Isis Town and Country - - News -

LO­CAL chil­dren are be­ing urged to kick-start an ac­tive new year by sign­ing up for sport­ing vouch­ers un­der the State Gov­ern­ment’s Get in the Game pro­gram. Get in the Game is part of a plan to sup­port grass­roots sport and recre­ation, and in­cludes Get Started vouch­ers of up to $150 to help mums and dads meet the costs of reg­is­tra­tion. Mem­ber for Bur­nett Stephen Bennett said ap­pli­ca­tions for Round 5 of the Get Started pro­gram were open. “Get Started has been hugely suc­cess­ful, and I have no doubt we are go­ing to see a flurry of ap­pli­ca­tions in this round as par­ents, car­ers and guardians look to get their chil­dren in­volved in sport and recre­ation,” Mr Bennett said. “We all know that obe­sity is at epi­demic lev­els in Australia and Queens­land is un­for­tu­nately no ex­cep­tion.” En­tries close on Fri­day.
