LOCAL SPORTS GET FUNDING BOOST

Sporting organisations in the Wakehurst electorate have received a major boost with the announcement of the Local Sport Grants Program by the NSW Government.

Member for Wakehurst, Brad Hazzard said the grants would provide essential funds to assist local sporting organisations increase participation, purchase equipment and improve facilities.

“Sport is a way of life in our community and the Local Sport Grant Program is another excellent example of the NSW Government delivering for the people of Wakehurst,” Mr Hazzard said.

“These grants provide vital funds to our local clubs which in turn contributes to improved social, health and cultural outcomes for the wider community.”

Minister for Sport Geoff Lee said the grants provide a welcome lift to communities as NSW emerges from the challenges of the COVID-19 pandemic.

“The pandemic, bushfires, drought and recent floods have affected NSW communities in recent months,” Mr Lee said.

“These grants are important for the local sporting community, in particular the army of volunteers who donate their time week in, week out to ensure local sport and recreation activities are available.”

The Program awards sporting organisations up to $20,000 for projects which focus on sport development, sport access, sports events and facility development.
