Tasmanian sports organisations to get financial assistance from state Government

Tasmanian sports organisations to get financial assistance from state Government
March 30, 2020

The Tasmanian has announced that it is to support grassroots Tasmanian sports organisations "through these difficult times" with $2 million in grant s to ensure their continuity through the disruption of the COVID-19 pandemic.

The grants program, announced on Friday as part of the Tasmanian Government’s Coronavirus Stimulus Package, aims to support the ongoing viability of Tasmania’s peak sporting bodies over six months following the loss of revenues from the widespread cancellations of winter sporting competitions.

Commenting on the program, Tasmanian Minister for Sport and Recreation, Jane Howlett stated "we are determined to keep our organisations fit and ready to recommence operations when it is safe to do so.

"The grants will provide a short-term injection of funds to cover cash-flow shortages as a result of the loss of revenue, such as player registrations along with support for salaried staff of peak sporting bodies whose revenue streams have been effected by competition cancellations.

"While maintaining employment is a key priority, we also want to ensure that the interruption to sports competitions doesn’t lead to a long-term decline in participation."

Minister Howlett thanked all Tasmanian sports organisations for their understanding and resilience during "this challenging time".
