Mulgoa will receive over $30,000 in funding for local sports clubs and community initiatives administered under the NSW Government’s Local Sports Grant Program.

Member for Mulgoa, Tanya Davies MP said that sport was the lifeblood of Mulgoa and investment in local sport was an important focus for the community.

“The very essence of this program is to recognise the undeniable talent and dedication emerging from local sporting organisations,” Tanya Davies said.

“As many of the local sporting clubs in Mulgoa are run by volunteers, these grants are crucial in boosting infrastructure, programs and services to increase on-going participation.”

Tanya Davies said the 8 organisations in Mulgoa were only some of the 831 that have received funding through the program.

“The program provides grants of up to $20,000 towards projects to assist regions with rallying the community together and ensuring ongoing involvement in sport,” Tanya Davies said.

“The NSW government is committed to supporting grassroots sport and improving participation rates across the state.

“We know that sport has many proven health, social and economic outcomes and I encourage eligible clubs to apply for the next round of funding.

“Projects that are eligible include upgrades to local amenities or improving access to facilities, training programs and community events.”

Program applications open in late 2018.
