About our Female Participation in Sports Grants
Grants of up to $3,000 (ex GST) are available to local sporting clubs to create or enhance opportunities and projects aimed at increasing female participation in sport, as players, coaches, umpires and in leadership roles.
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, as players, coaches, officials and in leadership positions.
Our aim is to assist clubs to develop projects that promote and encourage equal participation of women and girls in sports across the municipality.
Applications to the 2019 Female Participation in Sports Grants Round are now closed.
