Sporting organisations have more scope for funding following broadening of guidelines for Round 43 of the Active Club Program.

And state Member for Stuart, Dan van Holst Pellekaan MP, is encouraging organisations to make the most of this opportunity.

“For the first time, Round 43 of the Active Club Program is providing incentive to projects with strategic merit, with applicants able to apply for up to 100 per cent of the cost, up to $25,000,” he said.

“This is a wonderful opportunity and I strongly encourage sporting organisations to consider applying.”

For Round 43 utility-related projects such as solar panels, water saving initiatives, universal access change room refurbishments, and resurfacing projects, organisations can apply for up to 100 per cent of the total project cost.

Facility projects will only be considering for Round 43 and a budget of $400,000 is available for all facility applications that are not successful in Round 43, which will be assessed on a state-wide merit basis.

Applications close April 10, 2017, with applicants to be notified on 31 July 2017.
