Sub­sidy good news for clubs

Western Suburbs Weekly - - Driveway -

SPORT clubs can get $500 from the State Gov­ern­ment in the lat­est round of the Com­mu­nity Sport­ing Club Equip­ment Sub­sidy an­nounced last week.

Sport and Recre­ation Min­is­ter Mia Davies said 474 Perth clubs had $237,000 from pre­vi­ous sub­sidy rounds and had used the money to de­velop lo­cal sport in­clud­ing cre­at­ing ju­nior teams, get­ting new base­ball gloves, bats and flip­pers, and in one case, a horse jump.

The Depart­ment of Sport and Recre­ation’s four-year scheme has $1 mil­lion for Perth clubs and $1 mil­lion for those in the coun­try. Ap­pli­ca­tions are at www. dsr.wa.gov.au and close on April 17.
