Minister for Sport and Recreation

Investing in a healthier Tasmania

Monday, 1 July 2019

The Hodgman Liberal Government is committed to ensuring more Tasmanians can play sport and take part in active recreation activities to support our target of having the healthiest population in the nation by 2025.

The Government is maintaining the momentum, while investing for growth in our communities by encouraging more people to participate in sport and recreation by providing grants from $15,000 to $80,000.

The funds assist with major equipment purchases, the development or improvement of facilities, or playing surfaces.

Sporting organisations, recreation clubs and other providers of physical activity are encouraged to apply for the 2019-20 Sports and Recreation Major Grants Program, which is now open until October 30, 2019.
