The Parkes Sports Council is encouraging incorporated sporting groups or educational institutions to apply for funding in the North- Parkes Sports Grants.
There is a total of $15,000 available in this round for distribution to successful projects that promote participation in sport or improve sporting facilities.
Northparkes Mines and the Parkes Sports Council joined forces four years ago to provide financial assistance grants to sporting groups in the Parkes Shire. In a five-year agreement, Northparkes Mines committed to providing a total of $150,000 worth of funding to be distributed for sporting related projects. Parkes Sports Council, in administering the grants, aims to increase regular and on-going participation opportunities in sport, and to improve the sporting infra- structure within the Parkes Shire.
Funding is split between two distinct project types: participation projects and facility development projects.
Parkes Shire Sports Council Secretary, Anthony McGrath said: “These grants provide financial assistance towards things such as equipment, levies, uniforms, signage and coaching staff – all things essential to the running of associations and clubs.”
Visit Council’s website or contact the Grants Officer Sally Chapman or Ellie O’Donoghue on 6861 2398 for more details. Applications close on 31st January.
