Paris 2024 Olympic & Paralympic Games Preparation Fund

Supporting Australian athletes to prepare for the Paris 2024 Olympic and Paralympic Games.

The Paris 2024 Olympic and Paralympic Preparation Fund will provide $20 million in additional financial support for eligible national sporting organisations to help deliver key HP initiatives and projects that can significantly enhance the medal potential and improve the performance of our Australian athletes in the lead up to the Paris 2024 Games..

The ASC will administer the Program to provide support to Australian athletes to prepare for critical qualification events prior to Paris 2024 and assist NSOs experiencing financial strains from the increased cost of international travel and operations due to global inflationary pressures.

Grant funding opportunity 

Funding is available to enhance the medal potential and improve the performance of Australian athletes at the Paris 2024 Olympic and Paralympic Games. Two streams of funding will be provided through this program.

Stream 1

Stream One funding will provide a direct one-off payment to all eligible HP NSOs to support the increased cost and operational expenses related to their Paris 2024 HP Campaigns, including attending and participating in Paris 2024 preparatory events (e.g. Camps and Competitions). The total amount to be distributed to eligible NSOs through Stream One will be approximately $15.2 million (excl GST).

Stream 2

Eligible NSOs may apply to receive funding in Stream Two to be used to enhance their identified existing and new priority campaigns in the pursuit of performance outcomes for the Paris 2024 Games. Initiatives or projects must have a significant enhancement on medal and performance potential for Paris 2024, including:

  • increase in medals;
  • increase in medallists;
  • increase the likelihood of a demonstratable personal best Games performance for a team or individual; or
  • increase the chance of qualification.

This stream will provide funding to projects and activities above and beyond already planned preparations for the Paris 2024 Olympic and Paralympic Games. A total funding pool of approximately $4.8 million (excl GST) is available for this stream of funding.
