A total of 27 NT sport and active recreation organisations will benefit from more than $1.5 million in funding from the Territory Labor Government’s 2017/18 Facility and Capital Equipment Grant Program.
Acting Minister for Tourism and Culture, Dale Wakefield congratulated the successful recipients of the program including:
“Sport and active recreation is a way of life in the Territory. I am thrilled to announce the successful recipients of the 2017/18 Facility and Capital Equipment Grant Program,” Ms Wakefield said.
“This grant program is important for our sporting community because it allows our clubs and organisations to increase participation opportunities for Territorians, increasing levels of physical activity for community wellbeing.
“We know the importance of fit-for-purpose facilities for growing and connecting our communities, and this grant program is an important vehicle for providing access to quality sport and active recreation facilities for Territorians.”
The program provides up to $100,000 for organisations to deliver on projects and equipment that support the development, accessibility and opportunity for sport and recreation for Territorians.
Funding recipients included organisations in Alice Springs, Darwin, Dundee, Katherine, Litchfield, Nhulunbuy, Palmerston, and East Arnhem.
Funding is available annually for planning, building new, and improving existing sport and active recreation facilities in the Territory. The next round will open in July 2018.
