Move it AUS grants to further improve activity
SPORT Australia chief executive officer Kate Palmer said a new $28.9 million participation grants program will build on the strong foundation of the “Move It AUS” platform, giving sport and physical activity providers even more resources to improve the health and wellbeing of all Australians.
Applications opened on January 7 for the Move It AUS – participation grants program, which will be managed by Sport Australia.
The program aims to build awareness and understanding of the importance of physical activity across all stages of life, particularly focusing on getting inactive people moving in their local communities.
Grants for the four year program can start from $25,000 for local sport and physical activity organisations, through to $1 million grants for National Sporting Organisations who can deliver large scale initiatives that align with the Federal Government’s Sport 2030 National Sport Plan.
Applications for Move It AUS - participation grants will remain open until February 18. Guidelines are available at sportaus.gov.au/ participationgrants.
