Applications are open for the Local Sporting Champions grants.
Federal Member for Grey Rowan Ramsey says “These $500 grants provide financial assistance to athletes, coaches and officials, to go towards travel, accommodation, uniforms or equipment when attending endorsed state, national or international championships.
"The grants are aimed at alleviating the financial strain some families and young athletes deal with when selected for a significant sporting event. In country areas competitors are often being ferried hundreds of kilometres each week to attend training and competition.
“The Local Sporting Champions grants not only encourage more Australians to participate in sport they also assist in developing our future state and national champions.”
Applications close June 30.
