Clubs Get Going and Get Playing for another round

 

Sport and recreation clubs throughout Queensland are being encouraged to apply for funding to improve their services and facilities, with the Newman Government launching round two of its Get Going and Get Playing programs.

 

Get Going and Get Playing are two of three programs that make up the government’s Get in the Game initiative.

 

Michael Hart MP said the initial response was so overwhelming that Get in the Game funding has been increased from $16 million over three years to almost $48 million.

 

“475 clubs received total round one funding of $3.371 million under Get Going, and 83 clubs were provided with grants totalling $6.76 million under Get Playing,” Michael said.

 

Get Going provides grants up to $10,000 for items and activities to assist clubs in attracting and retaining members and Get Playing provides grants up to $100,000 to sport and recreation organisations for facility development.

 

“I encourage all sport and recreation clubs to seek support for their planned activities and facilities,” he said.

 

“The Newman Government is keen to encourage more Queenslanders to get involved in sport and recreation as it promotes a healthier lifestyle and strengthens communities.”
