First Nations Sport and Recreation Program opens for round 3

20 Mar 2024

Round 3 of the First Nations Sport and Recreation Program is now open for applications from non-discrete communities.

The program aims to provide community-identified physical activity opportunities for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples throughout Queensland.

The program will provide funding to organisations to coordinate and facilitate the delivery of physical activity opportunities in non-discrete communities.

There are two funding tiers:

  • Tier 1 – up to $25,000
  • Tier 2 – $25,001 to $200,000 (up to $25,000 per community)

Funding can be used for lots of different projects, including:

  • Employment – employment costs to support an active community
  • Participation – reducing barriers to participation in physical activities
  • Equipment – buying equipment to deliver physical activities
  • Capability and capacity – training for volunteers and staff.

Applications are now open and close on Wednesday 24 April 2022 at 5pm (AEST).
