About our Female Participation in Sports Grants
Participating in sports offers many health and wellbeing benefits, as well as increasing self-esteem, interpersonal networks, social inclusion and community connections.
Despite these benefits, there are low rates of participation of women and girls in all levels of sport.
Our aim is to assist clubs to develop projects that promote and encourage equal participation of women and girls in sports across the municipality.
Grants of up to $2000 (not including GST) are available to sporting clubs to create or enhance opportunities and projects aimed at increasing female participation in sport - as players, coaches, umpires and in leadership roles.
Our 2018 Female Participation Sports Grants have closed
This year's round of Female Participation in Sports Grants have now closed. Successful applicants will be announced in July 2018.
