Female sports participation grants

Participation in organised sporting activities offers many health and wellbeing benefits to our community including increasing self-esteem, networking opportunities and social inclusion. Despite these benefits, there are still low rates of participation in sport by women and girls in the City.

These grants of up to $2000 aim to assist clubs to establish activities, programs or projects that promote and encourage equal participation of women and girls in sports.

Activities, programs, projects and initiatives that will be considered eligible for grants will include (but not be limited to):

  • Costs associated with the establishment of activities, programs, competitions or new teams aimed at increasing female participation in sport (come and try days, new female sporting competitions etc);
  • Equipment required by female participants to take part in sport;
  • Coaching accreditation;
  • Umpire training; and
  • Costs associated with developing gender equity strategies, policies or codes of conduct.

To apply, make sure your club is eligible first by reading the Guidelines & Criteria that are attached to the Application Form.

Applications may be submitted year round, however, please note that applications for the 2020-2021 financial year will be assessed in 3 funding rounds as follows:

Round 1 - Closing Friday 9 October 2020

Round 2 - Closing Friday 29 January 2021

Round 3 - Closing Friday 23 April 2021
