Northern Territory grants available to assist sporting sector post Coronavirus recovery
May 18, 2020

Northern Territory Peak Sporting Bodies, sporting and active recreation organisations and regional councils are being encouraged to apply for the second expedited grant round of the Northern Territory Government’s $1.3 million Sport and Active Recreation Sector Immediate Response and Resilience Package.

NT Minister for Tourism, Sport and Culture, Lauren Moss notes “we recognise the critical role that sport and active recreation plays in our community and will play in our community’s recovery."

In the wake of COVID-19 Minister Moss adds “this is the most difficult situation the sector has ever faced. While community sports and competitions are able to resume through the Territory’s Roadmap to the New Normal, there is a long road ahead.

“The Sport and Active Recreation Sector Immediate Response and Resilience Package will provide immediate support to assist the sector to rebuild and to navigate through the upcoming challenges.”

There are four grant categories available:

Sport Surfaces and Sewerage Stimulus Package
To support sporting organisations with costs associated with the watering of turf ovals/fields and payment of fixed sewerage costs with up to $20 000 available per organisation.

Online Accreditation Program Stimulus Package
To improve the knowledge, skills and experience of officials, coaches and trainers, Peak Sporting Bodies can apply for up to $5,000 to fund or offset costs of enrolment fees for online accreditation programs to a maximum of $400 per person.

Online Active Recreation Stimulus Package
To support active recreation providers to develop and deliver online programs with up to $10,000 available per organisation.

Remote Sport Program Stimulus Package
To support regional and remote communities to deliver regular organised sport and recreation activities, recognised Remote Sport Providers can apply for up to $10,000 per community.

Applications open today (18th May 2020) through grantsnt.nt.gov.au and close at 2pm on 20th May 2020.
