Northern Territory grants available to assist sporting sector post Coronavirus recovery
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.

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.
