Northparkes Sports Grants now open

The Parkes Sports Council is calling for applications from incorporated sporting groups or educational institutions to apply for funding in the Northparkes Sports Grants. In this round there is a total of $15,000 available for distribution to successful projects that promote participation in sport or improve sporting facilities.

Northparkes Mines and the Parkes Sports Council joined forces to provide financial assistance grants to sporting groups in the Parkes Shire. In a landmark five year agreement, now in its 4rd year, Northparkes will provide a total of $150,000 to be distributed for sporting related projects. Parkes Sports Council, in administering the grants, aims to increase regular and on-going participation opportunities in sport, and to improve the sporting infrastructure within the Parkes Shire.

Funding is split between two distinct project types:

  1. Participation projects – that deliver a sport or physical activity participation experience to an identified group of people, and;
  2. Facility development projects – building new or upgrading sport and recreation facilities to support increased participation.

Groups are encouraged to visit Parkes Council’s web site or to contact the Grants Officer Sally Chapman or Ellie O’Donoghue (02 6861 2398) for more details. Applications will close on 31 January 2017
