Play Our Way

Must read

FEDERAL Member for Dawson Andrew Willcox is encouraging organisations across the electorate to apply for funding under the ‘Play Our Way’ program, which has been designed to make sports more welcoming for women and girls.

The funding program, which will run over three years, aims to deliver long-term benefits and improvements that address participation barriers faced by women and girls in sports.

Mr Willcox believes this grant opportunity will make a lasting difference to the communities within Dawson.

“Unfortunately, in rural and regional areas, sporting clubs and facilities are underfunded and under resourced,” he said.

“This funding is crucial to ensuring our future sports stars aren’t continually disadvantaged to make do with substandard sporting infrastructure.”

The funding program is open to applications from local governments, community organisations, not-for-profits and sporting groups.

Successful grant recipients can use the funding to provide safe, inclusive, quality and sustainable facilities, equipment and initiatives, while helping women and girls to remain involved in sport for life.

“I know of a few clubs in my electorate that rely on fundraising activities to maintain and improve their facilities,” Mr Willcox said.  

“This grant program will provide a much-needed boost to these fundraising activities, giving our local communities the sporting infrastructure that they need and deserve.”

Applications close Monday, April 29, at 2pm.
