Sport and Recreation opened COVID SAFE Active Clubs Kickstart (Kickstart) on Monday 25 May!
Organisations can apply for funding of $2,000 (ex GST) through Kickstart to go towards equipment, training or other eligible costs associated with resuming physical activities throughout Queensland.
This funding is for equipment and training that helps to deliver physical activity experiences or improves your ability to manage your organisation. You can also apply for support for operational costs such as replenishing catering stock, utilities, maintenance, ground expenses or safety and sanitisation requirement.
The good news is you can apply for this additional funding even if you were successful in receiving Active Clubs Round 1 funding.
