In response to the catastrophic 2019-2020 Natural Disasters the Australian Olympic Committee, Commonwealth Games Australia, Paralympics Australia and the Australian Sports Foundation (ASF) have joined forces to restore grassroots sport to affected communities.
The Sport Recovery Grants will be focusing on the organisations and community members who have been impacted by these natural disasters and require assistance to resume playing sport in their community. We encourage you to pass this onto local clubs in your area.
Who can apply?
The Sport Recovery Grants will be focusing on the organisations and community members who have been affected by the recent bushfires – or in different parts of the country, floods or other disasters - and require assistance to resume playing sport in their community.
Suggested grant values are up to $20,000, and priority will be given to applications from volunteer run organisations.
We know that natural disasters have a huge impact on the mental health and resilience of affected people and communities. We also know that sport plays a significant role in fostering positive mental health and rebuilding community and individual resilience – by bringing people together through a shared interest, and by encouraging healthy physical activity.
