SPORTS CLUBS BENEFIT FROM COVID-19 GRANTS

Local grassroot sporting clubs and associations which participate in community sport over the NSW border have received a helping hand, courtesy of the NSW Government’s COVID-19 Cross Border Sport Fund.

Member for Goulburn Wendy Tuckerman said three clubs in Yass received the grants of up to $1,000.

“The Yass community has many clubs participating in sport across the ACT border”, Mrs Tuckerman said.

“These grants will help our local clubs who did it tough during the pandemic.”

Minister for Sport Geoff Lee said clubs affiliated with a state level sporting organisation or association recognised in another state or territory were eligible for the Cross Border Sport Fund grants.

“Local competitions on our borders were also impacted by COVID-19 and this grant program will assist clubs and associations as they prepare for the winter competitions,” Mr Lee said.

The funding is in addition to the Grassroots Sport Fund, which provided financial support to close to 12,500 sporting clubs and associations across NSW last July.
