Indigenous Participation Funding Opportunity

 

Netball ACT recently received funding to support Indigenous participants of netball with registration, education and training and representative costs. The primary objective of this funding it to make participation opportunities in sport and recreation more accessible to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people, particularly people that are disadvantaged.

Individuals can apply for funding of up to $200 from Netball ACT, with details of the three types of grants detailed below;

1 > Individual Sports and Active Recreation Grant
An individual can apply for up to $200 to support their participation in an organised sports or active recreation competition or program of at least 6 weeks in duration.

2 > Individual Education and Training Grant
An individual can apply for up to $200 to support their participation in an education and training opportunity that relates directly to organised sport or active recreation.

3 > Individual Representative Grant
An individual can apply for up to $200 to support their participation in a representative sporting opportunity.

      An individual can apply for up to $200 to support their participation in a representative sporting opportunity.

      Applicants can receive funding through the ISGP up to twice for the period if one of the two allotments of funding is received for an Individual Education and Training Grant.

      We encourage all applicants to complete the request form and send it back to their district for office approval. Details on the form must be checked and signed off by a District representative, before districts forward applications to Netball ACT.

      From this point there will be a 10 day approval period, with applicants being notified of their application outcome and the requested funds being transferred directly to the district’s bank account. Please note that districts are responsible for allocating the required portion of funds to a specific club if and/or when required.

      Should the funding application be for a Netball ACT Representative program, the applicant’s invoice will be reduced dependent on funds requested, and no direct transfers will occur.

      For all enquiries regarding this funding, please contact Jessica King – jessica.king@netballact.com.au.
