    • Other Funding Opportunities
    • Local Council/Shire Grants and Initatives

      Many local Councils and Shires offer Grants to athletes representing their State on a National level (i.e. Australian Age and Open Championships, Australian Open Water Championships). Usually the Grants range from $100 - $500 and all you need to do is complete an application form. Most will also require a letter of support from the State Sporting Association confirming the athletes selection/eligibility and that the competition is sanctioned by the State and/or National body.

      Please contact your local council or visit their website to find out details of Grants offered in your area.

      If you require a letter of support please email with details of the grant you are applying for.

      Grant applications are assessed three times each year.  It may therefore take five-six months before you are notified of the outcome of your application.
