The National Integrity Manager Grant Program (the Program) is aimed at supporting National Sporting Organisations (NSOs) and National Sporting Organisations for People with Disability (NSODs), recognised by the Australian Sports Commission (Sport Australia), to employ a National Integrity Manager (Integrity Manager) to adopt, implement and embed the National Integrity Framework at all levels of the sport.

The Program will invest $1.78m to assist sports in employing and embedding National Integrity Managers as key roles in their core workforce to ensure the Australian sport sector is protected against threats to sport integrity.
