The Active Restart Infrastructure Recovery Fund provides not-for-profit sport and recreation organisations with funding for minor upgrade, repair or maintenance works and equipment to assist in re-engaging Queenslanders in physical activity.
The program is part of the Queensland Government’s $51.3 million Sport and Recreation COVID SAFE Restart Plan.
Whether it’s marquees for a fundraising event, white goods for the canteen, or a fresh coat of paint for the clubhouse, the Queensland Government is supporting up to 3,000 clubs with funding to improve their facilities and purchase relevant equipment to encourage Queenslanders to return to play.
The Active Restart Infrastructure Recovery Fund provides funding of up to $20,000 per organisation for minor upgrades, repairs and maintenance works and equipment to help re-engage Queenslanders in physical activity.
Projects may include the purchase of equipment to deliver new activities or events, assist in facility maintenance, or reduce operational costs.
Priorities for the program will be to share funding equally between Regional and South East Queensland, across activities and on those projects that will benefit as many clubs and participants as possible.
An email will be sent to all clubs who are registered with Sport and Recreation to receive updates but we would also appreciate you promoting the program throughout your networks. State or National sport and recreation bodies are not eligible to apply under this program.
