July 2020 Grants Update Winter


Active Restart Infrastructure Recovery Fund

Closing 7 August 2020

Sport and recreation funding up to $5000 (Category 1) and up to $20,000 (Category 2) is on offer to help community sport and recreation organisations return to play post-COVID shutdown. Applications opened 16 July and will close 7 August. Eligible organisations can submit only ONE application for a Category 1 or Category 2 grant, but not both; and with the funding pool being split equally between SEQ and Regional QLD, you can bet the SEQ component will be highly competitive!  As always, there are certain things that will and won’t be funded, and you’ll need to make sure you’re well-positioned to give your application the best chance of success.  This, of course, is where our grant writing services can help you!  More information can be found here
