Activate your club with valuable Qld Government grants


THE Queensland Government recently released their 10 year strategy, Activate! Queensland 2019-2029.

The strategy outlines where the government will direct their spending to ensure that more Queenslanders have access to participate in physical activity.

There are currently two grant opportunities:

Submissions should demonstrate: Fit-for-purpose, universally designed infrastructure that improves accessibility and functionality of active places and spaces; increased or improved accessibility for individuals and communities to provide broader community well-being; and projects that inspire activity in high-need communities across Queensland.
