Member for Pittwater Rob Stokes is encouraging sporting clubs in Pittwater to apply for funds under the NSW Government’s Local Sport Grant Program.

More than $4.6 million in grants will be allocated across NSW for community sport development and upgrades to local sporting facilities.

The program aims to increase regular and on-going participation in sport and structured physical activity, remove barriers to participation, help sporting clubs provide quality service to their members, and increase the amount of well-managed facilities in local communities.

“Community sport is a big part in the physical and mental wellbeing of many Pittwater residents and it’s fantastic it’s recommenced locally after the recent lockdown,” Rob Stokes said today.

“These grants are a great opportunity for local clubs to apply for a funding boost and I’m looking forward to seeing this year’s projects.”

Applications close at 1pm on Friday 19 November 2019, and further information about the program is available at www.sport.nsw.gov.au/local-sport-grant-program

The NSW Government has also announced a $25 million Sport and Recreation and Community Rebuild Package to help support the recovery of community sport following the impact of COVID-19. Further information is available at www.sport.nsw.gov.au/recoverypackage
