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

$4.65 million in grants will be allocated across NSW for grassroots sports development and upgrades to local sporting facilities.

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

“We have many great sporting clubs in Pittwater who do a fantastic job in bringing our community together,” Rob Stokes said today.

“This program is a wonderful opportunity for local sporting groups to secure funds and deliver improved facilities and equipment.

“Last year in Pittwater, funds allocated by this program included support for local dragon boaters, boardriders, BMXers, paragliders, basketballers, lifesavers, golfers and canoeists.

“I’m looking forward to seeing this year’s projects,” Rob Stokes said.

Applications close 25 November 2019 and further information about the program, including application guidelines, can be found at https://sport.nsw.gov.au/clubs/grants/localsport
