Game On Queensland Grants - Are Now Open!

Hinchinbrook Council

6th September 2017

Hinchinbrook Shire residents are advised that Game On Queensland Grants Applications are now open.

Game On Queensland Grants are funded by the Australian Government and are being delivered through the Queensland Government’s Embracing 2018 Legacy Program.

The Embracing 2018 Legacy Program’s aspirations, transformative agendas, and programs have been developed to create long-lasting benefits for our communities both before and after the Games

The Gold Coast 2018 Commonwealth Games (GC2018) will be a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for many Queenslanders. Beyond the 11 days of unforgettable sporting competition, GC2018 holds the promise of a transformative legacy, creating active and inclusive communities, diverse and enduring economic growth, and greater reconciliation and social justice for all Australians.

Game On Queensland funding is available for two categories within the program:

  • Game On Events can be hosted in existing local government facilities such as parks, grounds or gardens, and range from ‘come and try’ sport and activity days to fun runs, or even obstacle courses. Grants of up to $15,000 (GST exclusive) are available per event.
  • Game On Programs are longer term, program-based initiatives aimed at increasing participation in sport or unstructured / semi-structured physical activity—for example, yoga, group fitness, walking groups, dance for fitness or active transport. Grants of up to $40,000 (GST exclusive) are available per program.

Applications for Game On Queensland funding are now open until noon, 25 September 2017. All applications must be submitted online and must meet the eligibility criteria as set out in the Program Guidelines (PDF, 1MB).

If your community or sporting group has an idea for an event or program please contact Council's, Grants Officer on 4776 4616.
