Valuable grants to help your organisation

IPSWICH City Council has revamped the Sport Event Sponsorship program.

Council is now offering three categories of funding to sport and recreation organisations.

The following are the new grants that are available:

Sport and Recreation Event Grant. This replaces the sport event sponsorship and will offer a similar level of support.

Organisations who are hosting sporting events in the city can apply for funding of up to $10,000 to assist in running the event.

Sport and Recreation Minor Facility Improvements Grant. The facility grant aims to assist local organisation to improve existing community sport and recreation facilities in Ipswich.

Funding of up to $5,000 is available for eligible projects and can be used for projects on council owned or managed facilities.

Sport and Recreation Participation Grant. The participation grant aims to assist organisations in running programs that will increase participation and membership in their sport/activity.

Funding of up to $2,000 is available for eligible programs.

The grants will have two rounds offered per financial year.

Round one of all three grants are now open and will close on August 31.

Round two will open on February 1 and close on March 31 next year.
