Sport and Active Recreation Equipment Grants Program

Date/Deadline: 16 Dec, 2022

The Tasmanian Government is committed to supporting all Tasmanians to access a range of high quality, safe, fair and inclusive sporting opportunities.

The 2022-23 Sport and Active Recreation Equipment Grants Program provides sport and active recreation clubs with grants of between $2,000 and $25,000 to assist with the purchase of additional or replacement equipment.

Applicants are required to contribute at least 30 per cent of the total cost of purchasing the equipment.

This is a competitive Grants Program.


The Program is funded through the Community Support Levy (CSL). Legislation requires that funding under this Grants Program is provided for the benefit of sport and recreation clubs.

Eligible equipment will:

• Assist the organisation to deliver sport or active recreation activities, such as playing and/or training equipment, and playing uniforms.
• Replace or upgrade existing equipment.
• Ensure the safety of activities, such as first aid equipment, goal post padding and personal protective equipment.
• Improve the club’s ability to conduct its operations, such as whitegoods, office equipment, IT hardware and software. Where the purchase includes computers, laptops, tablets, or other such equipment, the applicant must demonstrate it has a club asset register, that users have signed an appropriate use of equipment agreement and that the equipment is only used for club related activities.

Funding amounts

It is anticipated that approximately $1 million will be available for distribution under the 2022–23 Sport and Active Recreation Equipment Grants Program.

Funding limits (per applicant) are:

• Minimum funding amount: $2,000
• Maximum funding amount: $25,000

Funding provided will be a maximum of the approved items to be purchased, successful applicants must have a minimum of 30 per cent of the total funding requirements secured to contribute towards the project
