State sport grants pair with Council COVID relief

Bundaberg Regional Council has welcomed the third round of the Active Restart Infrastructure Recovery Fund, which further compliments Bundaberg Regional Council’s own Community Sport Support Grant.

Bundaberg Regional Council has welcomed the third round of the Active Restart Infrastructure Recovery Fund, which further compliments Bundaberg Regional Council’s own Community Sport Support Grant.

Both grants overlap to provide further assistance across all sporting fields.

Applications for $20,000 State Government grants for COVID-19-impacted Queensland sports clubs opened on July 16 and Bundaberg Region Mayor Jack Dempsey encouraged sporting clubs across the region to take advantage of the opportunity.

“The last few months have been an extremely challenging time for all sports and the entire Queensland sporting community.”

“The support from the Queensland Government, will be a huge boost to participants, and along with Council’s own COVID-19 Community Sport Support Grants ensures that clubs and members of the sporting community across the region will not miss out on receiving funding,” Mayor Dempsey said.

The Active Restart Infrastructure Recovery Fund compliments Bundaberg Regional Council’s own Community Sport Support Grant and ensures that ineligible groups can still access funding through other grants, such as The Active Restart Infrastructure Recovery Fund.

Funding for the Active Restart Infrastructure Recovery Fund is up to $20,000 and closes on 7 August, while Council Community Sport Support Grants provides financial assistance of up to $5000 to those sporting communities experiencing financial hardships as a result of Coronavirus.

The Active Restart Infrastructure Recovery Fund targets funding for not-for-profit sport and recreation organisations to support their return to play.

Funding can be used to support eligible organisations with funding of minor works costs or to purchase equipment that assists with generating revenue or contributes to the reduction of ongoing costs.

Organisations eligible to apply must be incorporated not-for-profit local or regional sport or active recreation organisations that deliver or coordinate activity/ies and be:

  • incorporated under the:
    • Associations Incorporation Act 1981 (Qld)
    • Corporations Act 2001 (Cwlth)
    •  Cooperatives Act 1997 (Qld)
  • Corporations (Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander) Act 2006 (Cwlth); or
  • Sport or recreation clubs incorporated within a Queensland university; and
  • Be registered with an Australian Business Number (ABN); and
  • Must not have a gaming machine licence.

With the third round of the Active Restart Infrastructure Recovery Fund closing on 7 August, Mayor Dempsey urged sporting clubs to get their applications in quickly.

“The Program is only for a limited time and then it will be closed, so I encourage eligible organisations to apply as soon as possible.”

Applications for the Active Restart Infrastructure Recovery Fund can be made here.
