The Minister for Sport, Mick De Brenni MP has announced changes to Round 6 of the Get Playing Places and Spaces and Get Going Clubs grants.
These changes are based on industry feedback and to further support disaster affected clubs across Queensland.
The Minister is bringing forward the opening date for both grants as outlined below:
|Amended Program||Original Program|
|Opening Date||19 June 2017||3 July 2017|
|Closing Date||11 August 2017||1 September 2017|
Further changes to both programs include:
- Increasing the Round 6 Get Playing Places and Spaces budget by $4 million (from $11m to now $15m)
- Increased the maximum funding available for Get Playing Places and Spaces from $100,000 to $150,000 to help clubs with the costs of building infrastructure.
- Organisations seeking support for funding from Get Playing Places and Spaces for projects in disaster declared Local Government Areas (LGAs) will not need to contribute to the project, unless the total project cost is above $150,000, and projects requesting funding as a result of damage will be prioritised through the assessment process.
- Organisations funded in Round 5 of Get Going Clubs that would usually not be eligible for funding in Round 6 but are within disaster declared LGAs will now be able to apply.
