Financial support to assist sporting clubs and associations

Financial support is now available for flood-affected sporting clubs in Queensland and not-for-profit organisations in New South Wales.

Emergency funding is being jointly funded through the Commonwealth-State Disaster Recovery Funding Arrangements and will assist sporting clubs to repair damaged infrastructure and replace lost equipment. The recovery of local sporting organisations will be integral to the long-term recovery of the flood affected communities.

  • The Queensland Rural and Industry Development Authority have announced funding of up to $20,000 for sport and community clubs and associations.
  • The New South Wales Government have announced grants of up to $50,000 for not-for-profit organisations.
