by Marketing on October 7, 2021

Eligible sporting clubs and organisations can now apply for up to $3,000 for funding of programs and equipment through Round 50 of the Office for Recreation, Sport and Racing’s Active Club Program (ACP).

$1,024,000 is available in the 2021-22 ACP to continue to help the sport sector rebuild following the COVID-19 pandemic and associated restrictions.

Funds may be used to acquit various costs such as hand sanitiser, face masks and COVID Marshal vests.

Who can apply?
To be eligible for the ACP, applicants must be ALL of the following:

  • a not-for-profit active recreation or sport club or community organisation whose purpose is the delivery of active recreation or sport programs and services in South Australia.
  • incorporated under the Associations Incorporations Act 1985 (SA) or have some other comparable legal status.
  • have a minimum total membership base of 20 members. Total membership can include associate, social and life membership.

For eligible applicants with 99 members or less, the maximum grant available will be $1,500. For eligible applicants with 100 or more members the maximum grant available will be $3,000.

The ACP aligns with the objectives of the Game On initiative, which aims to get South Australians more active more often and enjoying the many social, health and lifestyle benefits sport and recreation provide.

All program funds must be expended by successful applicants within 12 months of receiving funding.
